Abstract [en]

This study describes a method of acquiring data from healthy and non-injured men that can be used as reference data when measuring the grip strength of the human hand using newly developed, PC-based hand strength analysis equipment--'Hastras'. Hastras can be used for continuous measurement and recording of force when the subject grips a sensor with maximum power. Computerized analysis of the force signal gives information about maximum force, fatigue, area and rise (force/s). The statistical analysis of the measurements on 81 subjects are consistent with earlier published data from other hand strength equipment. It is concluded that Hastras gives easy processing and storage of data, and also a detailed analysis of grip function.
