Effect Of Verbal Directions On Grip Strength Evaluated Using The Handheld Dynamometer, Laura Walsh, Marie-Christine Potvin

The Open Journal of Occupational Therapy

Background: Grip strength measurement using the handheld dynamometer is a key aspect of the evaluation of an upper extremity injury.

However, verbal direction guidelines, while provided, have not yet been shown to be most effective through research. This study seeks to determine whether the use of one of two types of verbal directions, with and without encouragements, resulted in greater grip strength as measured by the handheld dynamometer.

Method: The grip strength of healthy females (n = 60) was compared using two sets of prerecorded verbal ...
