Reference Data for Hand Grip Strength
Version 1


Large scale epidemiological studies, such as LIFE-ADULT, including thousands of participants with a multitude of novel QT assessments allow to define reference values. Reference values are typically used in quality control to find outliers in a specified data volume or to evaluate a given measurement value regarding its pathologic value. Measuring the hand grip strength is a standard assessment in LIFE, for which is no or little prior knowledge regarding reference values available.

Based on the large LIFE Adult population (10,000 participants) we generated reference data of hand grip strength using the widely accepted GAMLSS method. These data are the basis for the software application that allows you to compare individual hand grip strength data to the derived reference data.
