  • Story:

    Physical therapists measure a patient’s manual dexterity with a simple task. The patient
    picks up small cylinders from a 4 * 4 frame with one hand, flips them over (still with one
    hand), and replaces them in the frame. The task is timed for all 16 cylinders. The tool was originally normed for adults. In a follow-up study, researchers
    used this tool to study how dexterity improves with age in children and establish norms against which to compare a patient’s dexterity.
