Abstract

Date Presented 4/7/2016

What is the correlation between muscle strength of the upper extremity and hand function in older adults? Our study shows that arm-curl strength, rather than grip strength, is correlated with hand function. An arm-curl strength test may be used to predict hand function performance in older clients.
