Description/Abstract

Analysing the movement of the upper limb is difficult due to the variability and complexity of the mechanics available to complete any given task. When combining a clinical hand function assessment with the analysis of cyclic movement patterns clinicians are able to generate an independent assessment of function, in conjunction with waveforms of movement during a prehensile task, which is clinically relevant.

Applying repetitive tasks to facilitate movement analysis is quite common and usually incorporates the use of Activities of Daily Living (ADL) [1,2] or reach-to-grasp tasks [3,4]. In 2001, Fowler, et al., employed an adapted version of a hand function test in order to provide more stable movement patterns [5].
