PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to report normative values of the amplitude of joint wrist motions and grip strength for older age groups. METHOD Volunteers. (N = 147) were divided into four age groups, 60-69, 70-79, 80-89 and 90+ years, with a total of 62 men and 85 women. Maximum range motion values were obtained for wrist flexion, extension and ulnar deviation. In addition, grip strength measures were obtained for each participant. RESULTS In general, the strength and ROM values… CONTINUE READING
