For assessing the precision grip, pinch gauge was used (Smoot et al., 2010). Individuals were asked to hold the pinch gauge and press it in three different position, Tip of thumb to tip of index finger, thumb pad to lateral aspect of index finger, and thumb pad to pad of index finger and pad of middle finger (Tripod pinch). Individuals sat on a chair, their elbow was in 90 degrees flexion and shoulder in neutral position. Instructions were given to the patients to press the pinch gauge in three different position (Tip to tip, Key pinch, and Tripod pinch) as hard as they can. Each precision grip was performed three times and the best value was taken from each hand.
