  • Real time mode: immediately shows the client‘s current strength
  • Peak/Max mode: shows the maximum strength of a client‘s grip
  • Average mode: Calculates the average strength from two grips
  • Counting mode: Counts the number of presses which exceed a previously defined strength limit


  • Exchangeable springs facilitate fast switching of the capacity (additional spring sets are included with delivery).
  • Stable case for safe, easy transport and for storage of the additional spring sets, standard, W×D×H 350×265×85 mm
  • Safe, comfortable use thanks to non-slip rubber grips
