Effects of grip span and shoulder posture on endurance limit of force.
Proceedings of the IEA 2000/HFES 2000 Congress, Vol. 5, San Diego, CA, July 30-August 4, 2000. Santa Monica, CA: Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, 2000 Jul; 5:391
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.
