Example text

26 out using a dynamometer; if a reliable sequence = is obtained, the result should be a bell-shaped curve for each hand. Thus, if = the patient's injured side is the nondominant side, assume that the grip strength is 10% less than the dominant side. An average for that hand below the calculated 10% decrease due to its being the nondominant hand is the grip strength deficit. Conver= sely, if the injury is to the dominant hand, use the nondomi= nant hand as the baseline and add 10%. Any drop below that figure for the domina= nt hand is the grip strength deficit.

Total active motion is determined as follows: ♦ = Total active flexio= n (MP flexion + proximal interphalangeal [PIP] f= lexion + distal interphalangeal [DIP] flexion) - = Total active extension lag (MP extension lag + PIP extension lag + DIP exten= sion lag) =3D TAM Ri= ng or Little Finger Interpolate the values from Table 6-6 for the best fit with the patient's loss of ac= tive motion. <= o:p> Total active motion is determined as follows: ♦ = Total active flexio= n (MP flexion + PIP flexion + DIP flexion) - Total active extension lag (MP extension lag + PIP extension lag + DIP extension lag) =3D TAM Table of Contentso:p 37 38 Table of Contentso:p Di= gital Deformity Only the most severe of the deformities listed in Table 6-7 is to be rated, and it may be combined with a loss of motion rating for the digit.

These impairments are a= dded. If the resting position of the hand is = in a position deviated from neutral such that the range of motion is in a less functional arc, the impairment ratings for radial-ulna= r deviation should be increased. ♦ = Example: The patient has dorsiflexion to 30 degrees and palmar flexion to 20 degrees, which is a mild impairment of flexion-extension= of 12%. If radial deviation is 10 degrees and ulnar<= /span> deviation is 15 degrees, then that constitutes a moderate impairment of radial-ulnar deviation of 5%.
