Abstract
This study investigated the effects of shoulder posture and grip span on endurance limit (EL) of continuous isometric hand-grip force. The results indicate that grip span, thus, muscle contractile length is an important parameter that should be considered in modeling of EL and relaxation allowances in addition to hand tool design.
