The NEW Grip Strength Meter  Intellibio evaluates neuromuscular function in rodents.
This is to detect the maximum amount of the animal’s strength applied to grasp a specially
designed draw bar or grid.
The measurement is performed with a digital force sensor so as to retain the maximum force
applied on a digital display. Values can be either manually or automatically saved with the
included software.
Used for collecting data gathered from strength tests in rodents, it allows for statistical analysis
of the data directly on the screen or PC.

 


Concept

The apparatus for measuring the grip strength is positioned horizontally and the animal is held
by the tail above the grid. The user lowers the animal horizontally until it grips the grid with its
front legs. The animal then grips the metal grid and is pulled back on a horizontal plane. The
force applied to the bar or the grid just before it loses its grip is recorded as the maximum force.
