The Takei Hand Grip Dynamometer is designed to measure measuring grip strength. Available with either an analogue (A5001) clock face or digital by choosing the Takei 5401 digital hand dynamometer
The Takei Dynamometer is also helpful for estimating isometric grip force and general upper body strength. The dynamometer is a standard kit in most labs and provides a comfortable and safe grip strength test.
The dynamometer adjusts to fit a wide range of hand sizes. The included normative grip values are available from ages 10 to 70.
The Takei handgrip dynamometer provides instructions on the correct protocols to produce accurate results. It is an excellent screening tool used by the NHS; Sports Teams, and Universities use it to measure isometric strength.
Takei has manufactured products for over 20 years. They specialise in measuring fitness, aptitude, and psychological and physiological parameters.

Takei Dynamometer FAQs
How do I calibrate the Takei Dynamometer?
Calibrating hand grip dynamometers can only be done by returning to the Takei service department. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for details.
What muscles does the hand grip dynamometer measure?
A dynamometer is a tool used to measure the strength of the hand and forearm muscles. This simple device consists of a measuring scale with handles on one end and a retractable spring on the other.
When a user grasps the handle and squeezes, the spring is engaged, measuring how much force is applied.
Different variations on this Instrument can measure various aspects of hand muscle strength, including endurance, speed, power, or all three.
Because handgrip strength is often indicative of overall health and fitness levels, these measurements are helpful in assessing an individual’s muscular fitness and any potential muscle weakness or injuries.
Thus, the grip dynamometer is an essential tool that helps to evaluate hand and forearm muscle performance.
How do you perform a hand grip dynamometer test?
A grip dynamometer test is a simple way to measure grip strength. The test is performed by holding the dynamometer in one hand and squeezing it as hard as possible. The readings on the dynamometer will give an indication of grip strength.
The test can be performed on both hands simultaneously or on one hand at a time. The results of the test can be used to assess muscle strength and fitness, and to help rehabilitation programmes following an injury.
What is a normal hand grip strength?
According to experts, a typical hand grip strength is the force needed to grip an object.
This can vary depending on the size and type of object, but generally speaking, an average hand grip strength is between 30 and 40 pounds. However, several factors can affect hand grip strength, such as age, gender, and occupation.
For example, older adults tend to have weaker grip strength than younger adults, and women tend to have weaker grip strength than men.
Additionally, people with jobs requiring them to regularly use their hands (such as musicians or manual labourers) tend to have stronger grip strength than those who don’t.
Ultimately, though, the best way to determine your own hand grip strength is to consult with a doctor or occupational therapist.
How do you use a hand grip dynamometer?
To use the tool, you grasp the handle with one or both hands and squeeze as hard as possible. The device will then display your strength measurements on a digital screen or provide you with a printout of your results.
Several hand dynamometers are available, with additional features depending on your individual needs and goals. For example, some models have multiple handles, while others have only a single handle or come in different sizes.
Additionally, some models are designed specifically for use by athletes, while others are suitable for diagnostic purposes. Regardless of which type you choose, using a hand dynamometer is an easy and effective way to assess and monitor muscle strength over time.
