摘要

Summary: A system was developed to evaluate the hand function of patients with scleroderma objectively in terms of joint contracture, range of movement, dexterity, strength, and skin compliance. Twelve patients with progressive systemic sclerosis were evaluated using this technique to determine the effectiveness of classic physical therapy methods. A statistically significant improvement in hand function was found after a single physical therapy treatment. This conservative mode of treatment may contribute to improved hand function in patients with scleroderma.
