INTRODUCTION: The measurement of grip strength is a widely used clinical assessment tool for evaluation of hand strength. However, devices that are currently used have a number of limitations associated with them. Working with primary and allied healthcare professionals, the Flinders Medical Devices & Technologies research group at Flinders University has developed a new device for measurement of hand grip strength . The objective of this study was to validate the new Flinders dynamometer against the Jamar dynamometer, which is generally accepted as the ‘gold standard’ grip strength measuring device .
