Product Ergonomics Grip Testing
Design a more comfortable and easier to use product by evaluating grip force. See actual pressure outputs.
Evaluate Grip Force For Ergonomic & Product Design
ChallengeIn designing packaging for consumer goods, product engineers must design a product that is comfortable and easy to use for a wide demographic population, while keeping raw material and manufacturing costs low.
SolutionMeasuring the amount of force required to open, squeeze, and close products can now be evaluated with Tekscan’s Grip™ System, a tactile pressure and force measurement system. The system aids in research and development by measuring the time and force required to open and close containers. Areas on the hand and fingers that experience high forces during various gripping activities can be easily identified. Products and packaging can then be modified to become more ergonomic and functional. With the help of our highly qualified sales and engineering support team, each system may be configured to meet your specific needs.

Grip Force Measurement Applications:
- Determine required forces needed to grasp/open an object
- R&D for new product designs
- Competitive benchmarking
Benefits of Measuring Grip Force with the Grip™ System:
- One subject can grip several objects in many ways, once hand is instrumented
- Sensor position can be optimized to identify pressure on regions of the hand during various grips/maneuvers
- Fast sensor response and high scan rate up to 750 Hz
