ASSOCIATION OF DOMINANT HAND GRIP STRENGTH WITH ANTHROPOMETRIC MEASUREMENTS AND BODY MASS INDEX

Author: KANAGA CHELLIAH, RAZLANY MD RIZAM
Abstract: The main objective of the study is to determine the association of dominant hand grip strength with body mass index (BMI) and anthropometric circumference measurement of forearm, wrist joint and palm. A total of 150 university students between 18-30 years were voluntarily recruited in the study after ethical approval from the institutional board. The dominant hand test was done to determine the dominant hand for each participant followed by height, weight, forearm circumference, wrist joint circumference, palm circumference, hand length, middle finger length and dominant hand grip strength. The results showed that BMI was not correlated with dominant hand grip strength (p=0.151). Meanwhile forearm, wrist joint and palm circumference, hand length and middle finger length showed a moderate positive correlation with dominant hand grip strength (p>0.05). In conclusion, BMI was not the predominant factor that influenced the dominant hand grip strength meanwhile anthropometric measurement, forearm circumference, wrist joint circumference, palm circumference, hand length and middle finger length play the major role that influenced the dominant hand grip strength.
