Hand function in the elderly: relation to osteoarthritis

, : Hand function in the elderly: relation to osteoarthritis. Journal of Rheumatology 14(4): 815-819

Hand function and osteoarthritis (OA) were assessed in 32 subjects over 60-years-old. The Smith Hand Function Test bore a relation to age, coordination and hand strength but not to the degree of OA. Hand strength also was not related to OA. Subjective hand disability, measured with the Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire, correlated with the radiographic OA and joint tenderness as well as with sex and hand strength. OA does not contribute significantly to the objective decline in hand function in the elderly but may contribute to a subjective sense of functional limitation.
