The present investigation examines the relation between various clinical measures and the performance of a functional precision grip-lift task. Fifteen children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy (CP), aged 8 to 14 years, and 15 age-matched control children grasped and lifted an object whose surface texture was varied while their fingertip forces were recorded. The force coordination was compared with tactile sensibility, grip strength, manual dexterity, and spasticity using correlational and… CONTINUE READING
