Hand strength is one of the most important aspects of a person’s autonomy, and is increasingly seen as a leading indicator of overall health. The Commander Echo pinch is designed for hand strength testing or voluntary maximal effort evaluations. Commander Echo offers a portable, highly accurate digital testing solution that doesn’t require a computer for data collection. The Commander Echo console works with the wireless Echo pinch to capture and store all the relevant data and display it in the user's preferred units of measurement.

Note: The Commander Echo Console is required with an initial device purchase.
