BACKGROUND Appropriate regulation of grip force is essential in performance of various activities of daily living such as drinking, eating, buttoning a shirt, and so on. The extent to which individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) are able to regulate grip forces while performing elements of the activities of daily living is largely unknown. OBJECTIVE .(More)
OBJECTIVE It was recently shown that the magnitude of grip force utilized to lift and transport a hand-held object decreased if a light touch from the contralateral finger is provided [Aruin AS. Support-specific modulation of grip force in individuals with hemiparesis. Arch Phys Med Rehabil 2005;86:768-75]. The rationale of the study is to find out whether(More)
It was recently shown that the magnitude of grip force used to lift and transport a hand-held object decreased if a light finger touch from the contralateral arm was provided to the wrist of the target arm [A.S. Aruin, Support-specific modulation of grip force in individuals with hemiparesis, Arch. Phys. Med. Rehabil. 86 (2005) 768-775]. In this study, we(More)
We investigated whether slower velocity of arm movement affects grip-force generation in conditions with the finger touch provided to the wrist of the target arm. Nine subjects performed the task of lifting and transporting an object at slow, intermediate, and fast velocities with a light finger touch from the contralateral arm and without it. There was an(More)
