Design of Hand Grip System with Focus on Tripod Grip Strength

Journal Article


Abstract


  • ripod grip strength has been used as a

    key indicator of the overall state of strength and it is

    associated with mortality and disability. There are

    numerous ways grip strength can be measured. The

    measurement of grip strength in this project is using

    the power grip which is enclosing fingers around an

    object, bringing it toward the palm of the hand. This

    could be measured using a dynamometer. The

    objectives of this project can be summed up to design a

    device that will measure the grip strength of an

    individual and provide a graphical display that could

    be used by a physiotherapist to provide needed

    physiotherapy sessions to the patient. The device

    should also be able to track and detect the decrease in

    tripod grip over a period of several months. The data

    collected could be analyzed and represented in

    different forms to help users understand the results
