What is it about?
Wrist fracture is one of the most common fractures. After an acute injury, individuals who sustained wrist fractures have physical impairments such as loss of grip strength and reduced wrist range of motion. These impairments may lead to functional deficits and affect individuals active daily living. Hand dexterity assessment is a distinct way to evaluate the level of hand function. In this paper we are trying to understand the relationship between physical impairments and hand dexterity which represents the level of hand function.
Why is it important?
The study findings supports the assumption that by restoring grip strength and wrist motion during the rehabilitation phase will probably contribute to better hand dexterity and therefore, better hand function
