The DynaMo range includes the original DynaMo Plus and a smaller DynaMo Lite unit. These devices both work as a handheld dynamometer (HHD) and inclinometer that can be used to objectively measure strength and range of motion (ROM).

Benefits of the DynaMo Plus
The DynaMo Plus combines the functions from what would typically be three separate devices to provide a tension and compression HHD, grip strength dynamometer, and inclinometer in one handheld unit. Perform over 300 strength (compression and tension) and range of motion tests and monitor measurable outcomes with the DynaMo Plus.
The DynaMo Plus utilises smart attachments with Near Field Communication (NFC), enabling the DynaMo Plus to automatically detect the specific attachment that you've connected. Monitor your patient outcomes using the inbuilt OLED screen on the DynaMo Plus, or the DynaMo mobile app.
Benefits of the DynaMo Lite
The DynaMo Lite is our latest release in the DynaMo range, ergonomically designed to fit in the palm of your hand and optimised for handheld compression testing. Combining a handheld dynamometer and inclinometer, the DynaMo Lite is delivered with wearable limb straps that affix the unit to any segment of the body, allowing you to perform over 200 compression and range of motion tests.
Smaller, lighter, and more portable than the DynaMo Plus, the DynaMo Lite comes with a compact travel case so it can be used anywhere, anytime with the DynaMo mobile app.
What tests can I perform?
Both the DynaMo Lite and DynaMo Plus can perform a wide variety of strength and ROM tests. The DynaMo Plus provides a more exhaustive offering, with smart attachments that enable the user to perform additional test variations.
