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.
- 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).
- Anthropometric variables (weight) [ Time Frame: 1 minute ]weight of the volunteer. Unit of measurement: kilogram (Kg)
- Anthropometric variables (height) [ Time Frame: 1 minute ]height of the volunteer. Unit of measurement: meters (m)
- Anthropometric variables (Measurements of the hands) [ Time Frame: 3 minutes ]Measurements of the hands of each volunteer were evaluated. Unit of measurement: centimeters (cm)
