Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The study examined upper-extremity reaction times analyzed by five-year age cohorts to establish normative data for participants responding to stimuli on a touch screen and help delineate appropriate therapeutic intervention. Average reaction times ranged from 0.81 seconds to 1.09 seconds for the 200 participants. Reaction times increased with age, indicating potential correlations with functional outcomes.
