Abstract

Arthritis is the most prevalent chronic health condition without a cure, affecting 1 in 5 adults in Canada (The Truth About Arthritis, 2018). This chronic condition makes playing sports, such as golf, very difficult for those affected. Arthritis causes pain, stiffness, and results in permanent damage and deformation in the joints leading to decreased mobility (The Truth About Arthritis, 2018). Therefore, the objective of this study is to systematically analyse the hand forces produced from various golf grips at the distal-phalanges of the hand-grip interface using a mid-iron club in individuals with and without hand arthritis using new wearable sensor technology.
