abstract

  • Items in existing specific upper extremity questionnaires are also relevant to other regions and conditions. This finding is in agreement with kinesiologic and biomechanical theories that the upper extremity acts as a single functional unit. Questionnaires designed for the whole extremity could provide a more practical and still valid measure of upper extremity disability.
