CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable a therapist to measure the pincer grip of individuals with quadriplegia in order to devise a way to increase muscle tension. The device consists of a very sensitive force transducer, which can measure the skightest of grips, connected to a digital display. The device was made using a small commercial load cell attached to a six millimeter aluminum strip. When the cell was squeezed against the strip, it provided a reading of force in grams on a connected digital display, The unit was attached to a wooden base with a hinged lid to cover it.
