Normative data for modified Box and Blocks test measuring upper-limb function via motion capture

Jacqueline S. Hebert, MD, FRCPC, et al.

A widely used outcome measure of upper-limb function, the Box and Blocks test, was modified and motion capture was used to collect normative kinematic data. The data collected were displayed in kinematic graphs that allow us to define “normal” upper-limb motion with this test. This new test has the potential to be a useful outcome measure for persons with upper-limb impairment to quantify function and evaluate the effect of treatment interventions.
