The normal pinch strength was determined with the Mannerfelt-Ulrich intrinsic meter in 90 men and women aged 21-65 years. The pinch strength decreased with increasing age. The ratio dominant/nondominant hand was 1.12, 0.13 (mean, SD) for both men and women. The ratio would be useful in evaluating pinch strength under pathologic conditions.
