A hand dynamometer and pinch gauge/pinch meter were used to measure power grip and precision grip strength and the Jebsen-Taylor hand function test (JTHFT) (Mak et al., 2015) tool kit was used to assess hand function. Hand dynamometer and pinch gauge are valid instruments to assess grip strength (Neumann et al., 2017; Lindstrom-Hazel, Kratt & Bix, 2009; Shin et al., 2012). Handgrip strength and function of both patient (i.e., women with BCRL) and healthy control (i.e., women without BCRL) samples were evaluated in a similar fashion.
