Quantitative assessment of hand motor function in cervical spinal disorder patients using target tracking tests

Sunghoon I. Lee, PhD, et al.

Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is a spinal cord disorder in the neck region, which is the most common spinal dysfunction in adults over the age of 50. CSM can be caused by factors such as heavy labor and prolonged holding or repetition of uncomfortable neck movement, which many Veterans may experience during their service. This article presents a method for quantifying the level of hand motor deficits, a crucial functionality for daily living, using a handgrip device and machine learning techniques. This research enables an inexpensive, easyto- use, and frequent means to monitor hand motor function in CSM patients.
