microFET® Digital Pinch Dynamometer


microFET Pinch

  • Features load cell sensor technology combined with electronic board providing more accurate pinch strength measurements.
  • 60 lb. force capacity, starts recording force after .8 lbs. force applied
  • Easy to ready LCD display shows peak force and elapsed time.
  • Durable, lightweight pinch device.
  • Perform tests as a standalone device, or wireless with available microFet or data collection software.
  • User selectable units of measure force reading: pounds, kilograms or newtons.

The digital microFET Pinch is a digital pinch dynamometer that is used to measure pinch strength. The pinch gauge allows for measure tip, key and palmer pinch strength. Measurements are accurate and repeatable. The advantage of microFET Pinch is its digital design and display, to provide increased accuracy and precise measurement. Now with Bluetooth wireless capability, you can enjoy freedom from inconvenient cords or cables using the wireless Pinch with either microFET software package or FDC FET Data Collection Research software.

Available microFET software package automatically performs calculations and validity checks, generates tables and graphs from testing data, creates high-impact session and comparison reports from patient tests, walks the clinician through selected tests or entire protocols, and provides built-in pictures to demonstrate proper gauge and patient positioning. The software is compatible with Windows operating systems XP or newer.
