Samenvatting

Strength training is a part of the physical therapy for COPD patients, in particular to keep the lungs functioning optimally and to retain the strength of skeletal muscle tissue. It would be interesting to see whether there is a relation between overall body strength and lung capacity. Therefore, we aim to investigate whether there is a correlation between a FVC test and a MHGS test in healthy young adults. 86 subjects completed this study. FVC was measured by a spirometer and MHGS was measured by a hand dynamometer Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient was used to calculate the correlation.
