Reference Data for new Phenotypes
4. Guided Tour
- Head over to ‘Models’ using the menu bar
- Find the ‘Reference Data For Hand Grip Strength’ tool using the search, or the link below
- on the right side click the link ‘Hand Grip Strength Percentiles Demonstrator’ in the tools section, or use the link below
The results are shown in the “Percentiles” and “Distribution” tab. The former displays a plot comprising the percentile curves alongside the entered personal data. The percentile curves are broken down into more detail at the end of the tab in the form of a table below the plot itself. There is also an evaluation table right below the plot regarding the entered personal data e.g. showing the percentile that the individual is on at each age.
Distribution of the reference data can also be displayed by using the “Distribution” tab. The first plot covered by this tab displays how the individuals of the reference data distribute over certain age categories allowing for a better classification of the personal data. The second plot shows the hand grip strength values of all individuals within the reference data taken into account by the options set earlier.
