Hand-grip strength has been identified as one limiting factor for manual lifting and carrying loads. [...] Key Method Moreover, to assess the potential margins for improvement in hand-grip strength of women by training, we studied 60 highly trained elite female athletes from sports known to require high hand-grip forces (judo, handball). Maximal isometric hand-grip force was recorded over 15 s using a handheld hand-grip ergometer. Biometric parameters included lean body mass (LBM) and hand dimensions. Mean…Expand

The Effect of Hand Dimensions, Hand Shape and Some Anthropometric Characteristics on Handgrip Strength in Male Grip Athletes and Non-Athletes
TLDR
The results showed that handGrip strength and some of the hand dimensions may be different in athletes who have handgrip movements with an object or opponent in comparison to non-athletes. Expand
MECHANICAL AND FUNCTIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF HAND GRIP STRENGTH IN YOUNG FEMALE HANDBALL PLAYERS
The aim of this research was to define differences in functional and mechanical characteristics of isometric hand grip (HG) strength between young female handball players and the CG comprised ofExpand
Get a Grip: Variation in Human Hand Grip Strength and Implications for Human Evolution
TLDR
Frequent engagement in hand sports significantly increased grip strength in the non-dominant hand in both sexes, while only males showed a significant effect of occupation, indicating different patterns of hand dominance asymmetries and hand function. Expand
Assessment of Hand Grip Strength of Orthopedically Challenged Persons Affected with Upper Extremity
TLDR
It can be concluded that the lower value of hand grip strength of the orthopedically challenged persons may be considered during designing control panel, switches and other hand arm operated devices. Expand
Correlation between handgrip strength and hand-forearm anthropometry
The Pearson correlation coeffi cient (r) between the grip strength and hand-forearm anthropometry was found to determine either existing or not a linear relation among them. Collecting data of theExpand
Effects of Handedness on the Hand Grip Strength Asymmetry in Turkish Athletes1
Abstract This study aims to evaluate hand grip strength with respect to handedness in Turkish male and female athletes. Data were collected from 268 female and 1,234 male participants. There was noExpand
Efficacy of Handgrip Strength in Predicting Total Body Strength Among High Performance Athletes
TLDR
The handgrip strength test showed no significant correlation between all the 1RM tests, including the bench press, lat pull-down, leg press, leg extension, and strength test, and it was showed that the handGrip was not a significant measure of total body strength of high-performance athletes. Expand
Handgrip strength and hand dimensions in high-level inter-university judoists
TLDR
The results indicate that the handgrip strength is mostly dependent on the basic (body height) and hand-specific (IFL, MFL, and P4) anthropometric parameters in judokas. Expand
Maximal isometric handgrip strength and endurance differences between elite and non-elite young judo athletes
TLDR
Coaches should include conditioning programs for both maximal isometric handgrip strength and the ability to resist successive isometric contractions in the hands to maximize performance. Expand

Maximum grip strength in normal subjects from 20 to 64 years of age.
TLDR
The norms and prediction equations of GRIP developed in this study for men and women aged 20 to 64 years will help clinicians with decision making regarding grip strength. Expand

TLDR
It is possible that Jamar-like handgrip dynamometers have a handle shape that impedes those girls with relatively square hands from giving reliable grip strength readings over time, such that compared with their male counterparts, strength test reliability was significantly lower for average and square hand shapes. Expand
Estimation of hand force in ergonomic job evaluations
TLDR
Results showed that the power grip and pinch grip strengths collected with a newer digital dynamometer were comparable to similar studies using older equipment. Expand
Grip and pinch strength: normative data for adults.
TLDR
A high correlation was seen between grip strength and age, but a low to moderate correlation between pinch strength andAge, and the newer pinch gauge used in this study appears to read higher than that used in a previous normative study. Expand
Repeatability of grip strength and dexterity tests and the effects of age and gender
TLDR
Both tests showed sufficient repeatability, with no age effect on either grip or manual dexterity (between approximately 20 to 55 years), although a decline in grip and dexterity is expected at greater ages. Expand
Handgrip dynamometry in healthy adults.
TLDR
Normal reference values for handgrip strength should be established and stratified according to age and gender, and the variations associated with height do not warrant adjustments in relation to this variable. Expand
Measuring grip strength in normal adults: reference ranges and a comparison of electronic and hydraulic instruments.
TLDR
The study yielded population reference ranges of peak, average, and final strength over a 10-second grip assessment using an electronic dynamometer, suggesting that grip measurements may vary by up to 215 N between instruments. Expand
Age trajectories of grip strength: cross-sectional and longitudinal data among 8,342 Danes aged 46 to 102.
TLDR
This study confirms the previously reported grip-strength decline with increasing age, and uses data from three large nationwide population-based surveys of Danes aged 45 to 102 years to estimate the course of the decline by using full information in the longitudinal data. Expand
The role of muscle loss in the age-related decline of grip strength: cross-sectional and longitudinal perspectives.
TLDR
Results concur that grip strength increases into the thirties and declines at an accelerating rate after age 40, but there remain other yet undetermined factors beyond declining muscle mass to explain some of the loss of strength seen with aging. Expand
Recovery of hand grip strength and hand steadiness after exhausting manual stretcher carriage
TLDR
It is demonstrated that hand steadiness recovers much faster than maximum hand-grip strength after exhaustive manual stretcher carriage (less than 30 min vs more than 24 h), and muscle damage induced in particular by the eccentric components during stretcher transport seems to affect only the generation of large forces.
