Title

The relationship between wrist position, grasp size, and grip strength.

Reference

Summary

Maximal wrist strength is n greater extension than recommended for fusion. This is to allow for function. Getting 2/3 power post fusion should be considered v.good

Critique

Good on wrist position, but only 20 people so not really powerful on the size comparison. Appreciate probs of function and pt satisfaction.
