We are developing a novel device for measuring hand power grip using frustrated total internal reflection of light in acrylic. Our method uses a force sensitive resistor to calibrate the force of a power grip as a function of the area and light intensity. This research is work in progress but results so far augur well for its applicability in medical and other application areas. The grip measurement device allows the patient and doctor to see the change in grip over time and projects this information directly onto the back of the patient's hand.
