Enhancing Grip Strength Through Grip Training with Strengtheners

Board Membe: Sherry Mi ·
Abstract Grip is an essential hand movement to human function and health. The stronger one’s grip strength (GS), the more stable their grip, and the better they can perform tasks with their hands. Society is in need of a simple and effective hand exercise to strengthen individuals’ GS. One potential solution is grip training with strengtheners. This study investigated the effectiveness of grip training, with resistance from grip strengtheners, in helping improve GS. 24 participants (14 males...

Re: Enhancing Grip Strength Through Grip Training with Strengtheners

Board Membe: Sherry Mi ·
Hey Bernice! Thanks for the suggestion about extending the training period, and I totally agree with you. I can't guarantee that grip training can improve dexterity, though—this would be a whole new topic to research. When I was brainstorming project ideas, I came across dexterity too. I think this topic is really complex and nuanced because 1) dexterity is not exactly strength, 2) some studies have shown that there are "strength-dexterity trade-offs," meaning that the two indices have a...
