Grip strength is also known as hand strength which is measured by grip strength equipment. Grip strength is an anthropometric measurement that says about the muscular health of your hands and forearms. The measurement is associated with longitudinal studies as it functions as the indicator of the entire health condition of the adult. When you visit an occupational therapist due to weakness, your therapist performs a grip strength test. A hand-held dynamometer measures grip strength. You have to squeeze the dynamometer with your complete capacity; then, the therapist will calculate your average grip strength from both hands.
