Table 2 AUSCAN, COPM and grip strength measures at baseline, and after each splint phase, with P values.

From: A randomized single blind crossover trial comparing leather and commercial wrist splints for treating chronic wrist pain in adults

  1. Data reported as mean (standard deviation). P values reflect significance of the difference between splint and baseline using paired t-tests (2-tailed). AUSCAN scored on 10 cm VAS. COPM reported as average score of tasks selected using a 10 cm VAS.
