Objective: To gather initial data on the Wolf Motor Function Test (WMFT) from able-bodied participants.
Design: Cross-sectional cohort study.
Setting: Clinical research laboratory.
Participants: A convenience sample of 51 healthy able-bodied, right-hand dominant, adult participants, between the ages of 40 and 79 years.
Intervention: One-time administration of the WMFT.
Main outcome measure: The WMFT.
Results: Mean data are presented for all timed and strength tasks. For timed tasks on the WMFT, there were no significant differences among subjects for hand or sex nor was there a hand by sex interaction. Men were significantly stronger than women on the 2 strength tasks, however.
Conclusions: We provide preliminary normative data for the WMFT. More data are needed to produce precise estimates of norms and to explore relations among sex, age, and hand dominance.
