    The decrease of lip strength results in the absence of lip contact, which may result in musculature neuromuscular imbalance and affect several functions, such as harmonic dental growth, swallowing, speech and breathing. The measurement of lip strength is an important task in clinical speech pathology practice. This paper describes the development of a measurement system to be used in the processes of force assessment of lips. The user can follow the measurement by means of an interface, which allows registration of information, such as patient personal data, measurement and a brief report. The developed system may be used on personal computer at Windows platform
