Measurement of a number of indices of hand and movement angles in pianists with overuse disorders.
We hypothesize that pianists with small hands tend to hyper-abduct and hyper-extend the thumb to attain greater hand span. Their little finger is also stiffer and the hypothenar muscle and the wrist flexors need greater strength to resist the reaction force in each piano key....
