Why choose GripAble for hand and arm therapy?

Used by neurological, MSK, and pediatric clinicians, GripAble Pro is a two-in-one assessment and training device for the upper extremity. The portable, handheld device connects to the GripAble app, delivering gamified rehabilitation, which encourages engagement, repetition, motivation, and adherence.

The activities target different aspects of grip, release, wrist, and forearm movements, and address a range of physical and cognitive abilities and goals.

GripAble Pro is a modern dynamometer, with proven accuracy, sensitivity, and robustness. Lightweight and portable, it enables hand training to continue at home, with the therapist monitoring remotely.

GripAble is being used in locations and settings across the US

Engaging activities address physical and cognitive goals

  • Fun and engaging activities to meet clinical goals of increasing range of movement, grip, and pinch strength
  • Multiple activity levels to grade the patient
  • Assess each individual’s ability and then set the activities to match their ability, adjusting as they progress

Personalized training and goal setting

Physical rehabilitation is critical to restoring quality of life after stroke and many other neurological, orthopedic, and pediatric conditions, and studies show that the more repetition and strength training a person performs, the greater their chance of restoring movement and, ultimately, their independence.

GripAble enables you to set regular goals and provides daily feedback to help build motivation and engagement with training activities.

SERIOUS. FUN. REHAB.

As a neuroscientist carrying out his PhD at Imperial College London, Dr Paul Rinne was working closely with therapy teams on stroke wards. He recognised that traditional therapy equipment couldn’t provide real-time motivation, feedback or data for tracking progress, leading patients to become disengaged in their rehab regimes once unsupervised. This is when the idea for the GripAble device was born.
The GripAble team is driven by a desire to deliver simple and effective technology into the hands of the people that need it most. GripAble has the unique opportunity to be used by every single person coming into contact with the healthcare system globally, giving us the ability to not only change the face of physical rehabilitation, but also of healthcare as a whole.
