GRIP STRENGTH TEST METER WITH ONE ACCESSORY
GRIP STRENGTH TEST METER WITH ONE ACCESSORY
Contact our Behavioral Research Specialists for more information

Grip Strength Meters are used to study the neuromuscular function in laboratory animals by determining the maximum force displayed by an animal.  This test is included in the Functional Obervational Battery (FOB) to screen for neurobehavioral toxicity.  Changes in grip strength are interpreted as evidence of motor neurotoxicity.  

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 grid or the T-bar before being pulled backwards in the horizontal plane.  The force applied to the grid or the bar, just before the animal loses its grip is recorded as the peak force.  This force can be displayed as kilograms, grams, pounds, or Newtons - defined by the user.
