A quantitative study was conducted to determine if a correlation existed between dynamic grip strength and hand function in healthy subjects across the life span. Outcomes were measured using the BTE grip tool and the Jebsen Hand Function Test. An insufficient statistical correlation existed between timed Jebsen hand-function results and dynamic hand-strength values to support the use of test results as a clinical indicator of functionality or intervention planning.
