GripAble has a simple goal: to make rehab more accessible and effective. We focus on making products that are easy to use, affordable, and engaging. We started our journey with a product focused on grip strength because we believe it is the most informative data point relating to human functional health- from being a foundational function of self care, to being a biomarker of overall well-being. We have collected millions of high-impact data points, empowering us to better understand how to engage patients and maximize their functional well being. We have also built one of the largest and most up-to-date databases on grip strength.
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.
