The Sollerman Hand Function Test, CUE, Motor Capacity Scale, and THAQ are well-designed and evaluate meaningful tasks for people with tetraplegia; at least one or a battery of several of these tools should be used in clinical practice to build evidence for interventions.
To date, we are unaware of a kinesiological investigation in tetraplegia that has examined differences in muscle activation patterns in relation to performance on the GRT, Sollerman Hand Function Test, CUE, Motor Capacity Scale, or THAQ.
