When estimating preinjury grip strengthfor compensation and rehabilitation purposes, two methods have been identified in the literature: (a) comparison with the unaffected hand and (b) reference to grip strength normative data. The literature is divided about whether a significant difference exists between the grip strengths of a person's two healthy hands. Some researchers argue that handedness affects the grip strength ratio. According to these authors, there is considerable variation in the… CONTINUE READING
