This study sheet will be updated as the test/quiz approaches so be sure to check again!

Objectives:

  1. Obtain graphical representation of the force exerted by your hand while gripping.
  2. Observe the change in hand strength during a continuous grip over time.
  3. Observe the change in hand strength during rapid, repetitive gripping.
  4. Answer correctly, the questions provided at the end of the lab.
Terms to Consider:
  1. slow fibers, fast fibers, intermediate fibers, all or none response, fatigue, hand dynamometer.

Quiz:
