GripAble is a two-in-one assessment and training device to help people with weakened hands and arms. Mobile, portable and lightweight, the handheld device connects, via WiFi or Bluetooth, to an app on a tablet, where the user can play fun and engaging activities.
GripAble tracks four key hand movements – grip / release, wrist extension / flexion, radial / ulnar deviation and pronation / supination; repetitions, and minutes of training. The device is highly sensitive and can be used by most people, even those with limited grip or movement. Easy to set up, GripAble can be calibrated and personalised to each user’s ability.
GripAble is based on intuitive, fuss-free technology so you can get set up in minutes.
