STUDY DESIGN: Blinded randomized controlled trial. INTRODUCTION: Patients with Parkinson disease (PD) have sensory problems, but there is still no accurate understanding of the effects of sensory-motor interventions on PD. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To investigate the effects of sensory-motor training (SMT) on hand and upper extremity sensory and motor function in patients with PD. METHODS: Forty patients with PD were allocated to the SMT group or the control group (CG) (mean ages ± standard deviation: SMT, 61...

STUDY DESIGN: Clinical measurement. INTRODUCTION: Common provocative maneuvers to differentiate thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) osteoarthritis from other sources of pain are the grind, metacarpal (MC) flexion, and MC extension tests. A maneuver known as the pressure-shear test is described here. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To compare the diagnostic value of the grind, metacarpal flexion, metacarpal extension, and pressure-shear tests for CMC osteoarthritis of the thumb...

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. INTRODUCTION: Few studies have evaluated the course of recovery after distal radius fracture (DRF) when functional decline and fracture risk may be affected. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this study was to determine changes in overall functional status over the first year after a DRF in women aged 50 years and older. METHODS: Seventy-eight women were assessed for balance, balance confidence, lower extremity strength, gait speed, fall history, physical activity levels, and self-reported wrist pain and function (Patient-Rated Wrist Evaluation) at weeks 1, 3, 9, 12, 26, and 52 after DRF...

STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. INTRODUCTION: The Patient-Rated Wrist Evaluation (PRWE) questionnaire is used to evaluate functional outcomes after treatment of wrist and hand injuries and nontraumatic conditions. Since patients commonly present with an injury, it is impossible to assess preinjury physical functioning. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the population-based normative data. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The aim of this study was to determine the normative data for the PRWE questionnaire...

STUDY DESIGN: Single-blinded randomized controlled trial. INTRODUCTION: Pain management is essential in the early stages of the rehabilitation of distal radius fractures (DRFx). Pain intensity at the acute stage is considered important for determining the individual recovery process, given that higher pain intensity and persistent pain duration negatively affect the function and cortical activity of pain response. Graded motor imagery (GMI) and its components are recent pain management strategies, established on a neuroscience basis...

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective controlled study. INTRODUCTION: Previous studies evaluated the effectiveness of sensory reeducation (SR) after peripheral nerve injury and repair. However, evidence for long-term clinical usefulness of SR is inconclusive. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this study is to compare the sensory results of patients with low-median nerve complete transection and microsurgical repair, with and without SR at long term...

STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review. INTRODUCTION: The Disabilities of the Arm Shoulder and Hand Questionnaire has multiple language versions from many countries around the world. In addition there is extensive research evidence of its psychometric properties. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this study was to systematically review the evidence available on the validity and clinical utility of the Disabilities of the Arm Shoulder and Hand as a measure of activity and participation in patients with musculoskeletal hand injuries in developing country contexts...

STUDY DESIGN: Clinical measurement study. INTRODUCTION: The push-off test (POT) was recently conceived and found to be reliable and valid for assessing weight bearing through injured wrist or elbow. However, further research with larger sample can lend credence to the preliminary findings supporting the use of the POT. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: This study examined the interrater reliability, construct validity, and measurement error for the POT in patients with wrist conditions...

STUDY DESIGN: Clinimetric evaluation study. INTRODUCTION: Despite the availability of numerous performance tests to measure finger dexterity, there is no international consensus on hand function evaluation. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To evaluate the reliability, validity, and responsiveness of the modified version of the simple test for evaluating hand function (STEF), which is widely used in Japan. METHODS: The intrarater (n = 40) and inter-rater (n = 32) reliability of the modified STEF was evaluated by calculating the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC), models (1,1) and (2,1), respectively, in healthy individuals...

STUDY DESIGN: Case report. INTRODUCTION: Development of extensor tendon adhesions is a common complication after intra-articular metacarpal head fracture. Whenever these adhesions cannot be mobilized by rehabilitation, tenolysis should be considered. However, the decision for tenolysis is often delayed. When the rehabilitation program comes to a plateau and clinical examination may not be sufficient to find out the cause, dynamic ultrasound (US) can show where the gliding mechanism is disrupted and help clinicians to give an accurate decision for determining the next steps...

STUDY DESIGN: Case series. INTRODUCTION: Hand injuries are the most common injury observed in hurling although compliance in wearing protective gloves is reportedly low. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To devise a glove that offers comfort, protection and freedom of movement, using the bespoke capabilities of 3-dimensional (3D) printing. METHODS: Each player's "catching" hand was imaged using a 3D scanner to produce a bespoke glove that they later trialed and provided feedback...

STUDY DESIGN: Two-group randomized controlled trial. INTRODUCTION: Upper limb orthoses worn during functional tasks are commonly used in pediatric neurologic rehabilitation, despite a paucity of high-level evidence. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this study was to investigate if a customized functional wrist orthosis, when placed on the limb, leads to an immediate improvement in hand function for children with cerebral palsy or brain injury...

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective cohort. INTRODUCTION: Clinical studies that evaluate the correlation between associated lesions of the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) and outcome of distal radial fractures expressed with the patient-rated disability are missing. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To evaluate the outcomes of distal radius fractures associated with or without an injury of the TFCC. METHODS: Patients undergoing operative treatment for distal radial fracture were prospectively enrolled (n = 70)...

INTRODUCTION: Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) usually affects both sensory and motor function of hands and feet, resulting in impaired skilled hand function (e.g., typing a keyboard). However, quantitative and objective evaluations for this condition have not been established. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: We evaluated skilled hand function using a kinematic analysis and investigated relationships among hand kinematic function and the clinical sensory and motor features of CIPN...

STUDY DESIGN: A prospective cohort study. INTRODUCTION: Physical factors that predict hand dexterity and the recovery of hand dexterity after a distal radius fracture (DRF) have not yet been examined. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The first objective was to evaluate the recovery of hand dexterity comparing the injured and uninjured hands during the year after a DRF. The second objective was to determine the effect of age and sex on hand dexterity of the injured hand...

STUDY DESIGN: A within-subject research design was used in this study. The difference of the range of motion (ROM) with and without ulnar nerve block was analyzed. INTRODUCTION: For the clinical evaluation of the functional effects of ulnar nerve palsy at the hand the relevance of clinical tests is in discussion. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The aim of the study was to evaluate the predictive value of 2 clinical tests for a simulated ulnar nerve lesion by motion analysis with a sensor glove...
