The Grip-ball is an innovative device that has been designed to measure grip strength. The Grip-ball consists of an airtight ball that contains a pressure sensor and Bluetooth communication system. The Grip-ball can be inflated to different initial pressures, with data available continuously in real time. The aim of this study was to build a model to predict the force applied to the Grip-ball dynamometer based only on the pressure measured by the Grip-ball and its initial pressure.
