The Dynamometer is the gold standard in measuring rehabilitation progress and for routine evaluation of hand and finger muscle function. It is particularly useful for patients with hand trauma and dysfunction due to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The Dynamometer represents an excellent way to track the hand’s response and progress associated with any hand muscle related therapy. The Jamar Pinch Tester is a great way to isolate muscle strength of specific digits such as the thumb which can be missed in the testing with the Dynamometer.

The JAMAR Hydraulic Hand Dynamometer is an indispensable tool, to generate accurate and objective data required for reimbursable hand and forearm rehabilitation services. The Jamar Hydraulic dynamometer gives accurate and clinically reproducible grip strength readings. The unit has an adjustable 5-position handle with adjustments from 1 3/8″ to 3 3/8″, in half-inch increments, allowing for full profile development of muscle, bone and tendon function in the hand, wrist and fingers.

The Peak-hold needle automatically retains the highest reading until reset. This maximum strength indicator facilitates accurate maximum strength readings. Use of average testing of three squeezes assures no anomalies and highly reproducible results. The Jamar Hand Dynamometer is ideal for routine screening of hand muscle function. It is also particularly useful for initial and ongoing evaluation of clients with hand trauma and dysfunction due to carpal tunnel syndrome. The Dynamometer represents an excellent way to track the hand’s response and progress associated with therapy. Isometric design ensures accurate, reproducible results.

The Jamar Hand Dynamometer is the definitive test for muscle functionality in the hand and has set the standard for measuring and analyzing hand dysfunction.
