  • Acceptable Pinch Grip Forces

    I'm evaluating the designs of a clamp used stop flow in a plastic hose. The
    clamps use a Thumb-Finger Palmar Grip (pinch grip) to close and open the
    clamp. The query I have relates to the acceptable level of force used to
    close and open the clamps. We are evaluating two alternatives to ensure we
    don't end up with repetitive stress injuries in employees. Employees will
    use the clamp 120 to 150 times per day. Any guidance toward references would
    be helpful.

    Thanks,
