Using a grip strength myometer, we found that the average grip strength of the injured hand was for 94.0 [+ or -] 9.6% compared to the contralateral hand.
in vitro acts by a type of mechanism connected to gas that can activate the plasma membrane of adenylate cyclase, thereby reducing specific gap junctions of myometrial cells and eventually decreasing surface tension of intracellular calcium, thus keeping myometer in zero phase of labour and causing uterine relaxation (5) The power of H.C.G.
Other tests found through the bibliographic search were: the 30 s push-up test, the arm-hang test and the handheld myometer tests (this last test is equivalent to the hand grip strength predictiveness test), the push-up to failure test, the pull-up test and the overhead medicine ball throw [117,127,128,132,139,144,147-149] (Table 3).

Measurements of maximal knee extension strength (KES): Maximal voluntary strength in knee extension was measured using a specially designed myometer (TAKEI, Niigata, Japan) in accordance with a procedure described in previous studies (Nakamoto et al., 2012; Yoshitake et al., 2011).
