Grip Strength Meter

Grip Strength Meter – for assessing neuromuscular functions in rodents like mice and rat.

Orchid’s Grip Strength Meter measures the muscle strength in both forelimbs and hind limbs, allowing assessment of neuromuscular function.

The system can be used to study effects of hormones, toxins, muscle relaxants as well as disease or the aging process on the muscular strength of the animal. The system can be configured for rats, mouse or other small laboratory animals.

Basically, the grip strength meter is positioned horizontally and the subjects are held by the tail and lowered towards the apparatus. The animals are allowed to grasp the metal bar or grid and are then pulled backwards in the horizontal plane. The force applied to the bar or to the grid just before it loses grip is recorded as the peak force. This force can be measured in Kg/Gram, Newton or lbs.

Systems for measuring grip strength of both front limb as well as hind limbs of mice & rats are available.
