Abstract

Date Presented 4/8/2016

This study established norms by gender and age groups for the Baseline® digital dynamometer and pinch gauge. Norms specific to the Baseline instruments will control for variability associated with using norms published in 1985 for the Jamar hydraulic dynamometer and the B&L® hydraulic pinch gauge.
