Brief Summary:
This study has quantified the hand strength in movements of handgrip and pinch with electronic dynamometer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hand Strength Device: Electronic Dynamometer Device: Hydraulic dynamometer Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The hand is considered the most improved tool and differentiated of the human, with great importance in the accomplishment of numerous actions due to an essential function: The handgrip strength. The handgrip and pinch movements are very important for an accomplishment of daily activities. For an evaluation of the movements, the dynamometry has been used in many fields of health and frequently in the area of rehabilitation. However, if the type of dynamometer used is not suitable for children, a measurement of the handgrip may be compromised. Therefore, the present study verified the effectiveness of an electronic dynamometer to evaluate the handgrip strength and pinch in children and adolescents.

Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Measurement of Handgrip Strength and Pinch of Children and Adolescents Using an Electronic Dynamometer
Actual Study Start Date : May 8, 2017

Actual Study Completion Date : November 23, 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Hand strength
We selected volunteers without motor abnormalities with aged 6 to 17 years divided in groups (n = 30) according to an age group. The tests were performed in a single session lasting 20 minutes, when volunteers used a hydraulic dynamometer and an electronic dynamometer, in order to quantify the hand strength.
Device: Electronic Dynamometer
Mensuration of the handgrip strength of each volunteer using an electronic dynamometer.

Device: Hydraulic dynamometer
Mensuration of the handgrip strength of each volunteer using a hydraulic dynamometer.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Force [ Time Frame: 15 minutes ]
    The force of handgrip, pinch pulp-side and pinch pulp-pulp movement. The test was measured 3 times with 1 minute interval . Unit of measurement: kilogram - force (kgf).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Anthropometric variables (weight) [ Time Frame: 1 minute ]
    weight of the volunteer. Unit of measurement: kilogram (Kg)

  2. Anthropometric variables (height) [ Time Frame: 1 minute ]
    height of the volunteer. Unit of measurement: meters (m)

  3. Anthropometric variables (Measurements of the hands) [ Time Frame: 3 minutes ]
    Measurements of the hands of each volunteer were evaluated. Unit of measurement: centimeters (cm)
