Jebsen Hand Function Test

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

The Jebsen hand function test is one of several tests available for hand function. The Slove­ne version of the test is based on its original British version. The Jebsen hand function test consists of nine subtests that are representative of a wide variety of hand functions: writing, maze drawing, turning cards over, manipulation of small objects, stacking checkers, simula­ted eating, nut and bolt assembly, manipulating large light objects and manipulating large heavy objects. The sample included the results for 212 volunteers without disabilities. Norms were determined. Data are presented for hand dominance (nondominant/dominant), sex and subtest. A comparison of the Slovene and British versions of the test was also made. It was established that the time required to perform each subtest increases with age. However, the­re were no significant differences between males and females or between the Slovene and British versions.
