dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation among three hand strength measurement methods: Hand dynamometer, MDD (Middle Digital Extension Isokinetic Dynamometer), and Cybex. Five students (2 males, 3 females) from Ball State University were asked to participate in this study. Both right and left lower arm data were collected from these subjects. A Cybex 340 (Lumax Cor.) was employed to determine wrist flexion and extension isokinetic peak torque, total work, and power at 30 degrees/second and 60 degrees/second. A MDD was used to determine third digit eccentric torque, work, and power. A hand dynamometer (Lafayette Instrument Co., Model 76618) was used to determine grip force. Pearson product moment correlation coefficients were used to determine correlation among these variables. Significant correlations were noted between isometric grip strength and isokinetic 30 and 60 degrees/second wrist flexion power, as well as between isometric grip strength and isokinetic 30 degrees/second wrist extensor power. The results of this study indicate there is very little relationship between the three clinically used measurement tools.
