Abstract

The change of wrist force with simultaneous grasp force at every two degrees of wrist angle under isokinetic wrist movements at low speeds was verified. A specially designed isokinetic wrist dynamometer was used to test each subject in a random order. The results by the Tukey tests showed that the wrist angle from 58 degrees of flexion to 22 degrees of extension was in the same group that included the maximum grasp force that was 285.45N at 24 degrees of flexion. The study revealed that the most postural analysis categorized wrist positions into three levels as 0, 15 or 16 and 45 degrees to decide the severity of awkward wrist postures.
