To determine the usefulness of Jebsen hand function test in rheumatoid arthritis patients

The experimental subjects were divided into 3 groups (Group 1:17 persons; control, Group 2:21 persons; RA without hand deformity, Group 3:16 persons; RA with hand deformity). They were assessed by Jebsen hand function test. Further included assessments were grip and pinch strength, joint deformity counts, and visual analogue scales.

Jebsen hand function test scores were significantly decreased in rheumatoid arthritis patients compared with control. Jebsen hand function test scores were well correlated with visual analogue scales in group 2 and correlated with joint deformity counts in group 3.

Jebsen hand function test would be useful tool for the evaluation of hand function in the rheumatoid arthritis patients with hand deformity.

Key Words: Jebsen hand function test, Rheumatoid arthritis, Hand deformity, Grip stength, Pinch strength
