Jamar Hydraulic Pinch Gauge
The Jamar Hydraulic Pinch Gauge is an easy-to-use evaluation tool for measuring finger strength and pinching capabilities. Pinch the silver tab to get an instant PSI reading on the gauge needle. The pinch gauge freezes at maximum force for easier reading.
Pinch force is measured on a dual scale in pounds and kilograms (45 lbs. or 22.5 kg. maximum reading). The instrument was designed to be held by a therapist, so that the weight of the pinch gauge is not supported by the client being tested.
- Hydraulic pinch gauge ideal for routine screening of grip strength and initial and ongoing evaluation
- Unique design frees the client to perform a true pinch pattern because the therapist, not the client, supports the weight of the gauge
- Dual scale readout measures in both pounds and kilograms, up to 45 lbs., with a peak hold needle that retains highest reading until reset
- Non latex, unit comes with carrying/storage case, one year warranty, and complete instruction booklet for hand strength and flexibility screening
