Jebsen hand function test in children was administered without modification from the adult test with the exception of using table and chair heights appropriate to the size of the child, and excluding writing for the 6-7 age group. This extension of the hand function test to children should be of value in helping to differentiate those improvements in hand function which are due to maturation from those which are due to particular therapy in children with impaired hand function.

To provide the clinician with the data from normal Korean children when test is given to Korean subjects, and to encourage the clinician to give this test for better hand rehabilitation, the authors report the result of Jebsen hand function test in 300 normal Korean children with the statistical analysis.

Key Words: Hand function, Healthy children, Jebsen hand function test
