Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The resonant frequency of the wrist has been measured in sixteen hypermobile and nine normal women at ten levels of peak torque. At the lowest level the results were identical but at the others the hypermobile values were lower. Damping and thixotropy appeared to be normal. In another group the grip strength of hypermobile subjects was similar to that of controls. The possibility that the connective tissue of the musculature of hypermobile subjects is of enhanced compliance is discussed.
