STUDY DESIGN: Case-control study. INTRODUCTION: A subset of patients with hand osteoarthritis (OA) shows evidence of central pain phenotypes. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To examine whether differences exist in experimental pain responses in the affected and nonaffected sides of patients with unilateral hand OA. To investigate the test-retest reliability of pressure algometry and manual digital palpation in patients with unilateral hand OA. METHODS: The hand OA group consisted of 20 patients, and the control group consisted of 20 healthy subjects...

INTRODUCTION: Contractures are the most common complication after traumatic injury to the elbow. Although evidence supporting the use of static progressive and serial static orthoses to help recover range of motion after these complex injuries is growing, there is currently a paucity of literature exploring its efficacy in pediatric populations. CASE DESCRIPTION: The following case study presents the results of the use of static progressive and serial static orthoses with a young patient who presented with both elbow extension and flexion contractures after a complex fracture dislocation injury...

STUDY DESIGN: Mixed-methods with cross-sectional survey and interviews. INTRODUCTION: Hand therapy is a specialty area of practice for occupational (OT) and physical therapists (PT), requiring experience and certification beyond entry-level generalist education. Perspectives and inclusion of content related to hand therapy differs among entry-level OT programs and faculty. PURPOSE: Perception and inclusion of hand therapy content in OT programs was examined in this mixed-method study to better understand the trends in academia regarding integration of content related to hand therapy...

STUDY DESIGN: Case report. INTRODUCTION: Radial nerve injury can cause severe functional impairment due to paralysis of wrist and digit extensors. Various orthotic designs have been described, including static, dynamic, and tenodesis. All provide wrist stabilization or extension assistance. Some, but not all, also provide extension assistance to the wrist, thumb, and fingers. PURPOSE AND METHODS: This article tells the story of Max, a 27-year-old male university student, who sustained a radial nerve injury after a left humeral shaft fracture...

STUDY DESIGN: This was a cross-sectional study. INTRODUCTION: Home exercise programs (HEPs) are frequently prescribed to maximize a patient's recovery and ensure maintenance of therapeutic gains produced during supervised treatment. Improved understanding of patient preferences and incorporation of simple mobile health technologies may be beneficial strategies for improving patient HEP adherence. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine client's preferred mode of home exercise program delivery when offered a choice between a cellular video and paper handout...

STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review. INTRODUCTION: The Patient-Rated Elbow Evaluation (PREE) and the self-report section of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons-elbow form (pASES-e) are 2 patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) commonly used to assess pain and disability arising from elbow disorders. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To systematically review and summarize the quality and content of the evidence that is available on the psychometric properties of the PREE and pASES-e...

STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review. INTRODUCTION: The rehabilitation of patients following flexor tendon injury has progressed from immobilization to true active flexion with the addition of wrist motion over the last 75 years. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: This review specifically intended to determine whether there is evidence to support one type of exercise regimen, early passive, place and hold, or true active, as superior for producing safe and maximal range of motion following flexor tendon repair...

STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional. INTRODUCTION: The muscle strength has been studied in different populations in relation with individual and other factors. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this study was to determine values of grip strength in adolescents and to examine its association with sex, age, weight, height, nutritional status, handedness, and academic performance. METHODS: A total of 452 adolescents (246 men and 206 women) aged 12 to 17 years were included in the study...

STUDY DESIGN: Pretest/posttest case series design. INTRODUCTION: Rates of prosthetic device abandonment are highest among persons with upper extremity (UE) amputation. Modified Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (mCIMT), which has been extensively studied in patients with chronic, subacute, and acute stroke, is an under-utilized approach to treat persons with UE amputation. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: To present an mCIMT intervention for prosthetic device training after a unilateral UE amputation...

STUDY DESIGN: Psychometric study with 2-week interval. INTRODUCTION: Musculoskeletal hand complaints are common among manual workers. Mismatch between anthropometric hand features and tasks can affect the ability to perform hand activities, with an increased risk of complaints. Although screening of these features may improve diagnosis and treatment, no validated screening tool is available. The Practical Hand Evaluation (PHE) screening tool might fill this gap, but its psychometric properties are unknown...

INTRODUCTION: Hand orthoses are designed to relieve pain, immobilize a body part and protect the injury site, prevent or correct deformity, and promote healing in the body. Practitioners who prescribe and create orthoses are reliant on patient adherence to achieve desired outcomes in treatment. Understanding client preferences may promote better orthotic intervention outcomes. PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to determine the level of client satisfaction with device characteristics and service provision of custom-fabricated hand orthotics using the Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with Assistive Technology (QUEST) version 2...
