In children isometric muscle force can be measured with acceptable reproducibility by using a simple hand-held dynamometer. Reference values for 10 different muscle groups are given for children aged 3.5-15 years. If age and weight are known, the force can be predicted. The most pronounced differences between the dominant and the non-dominant side were found in the elbow flexors, 3 of the 6 age groups showing greater force on the dominant side, and in the wrist extensors, the 2 oldest age… CONTINUE READING
