Table 3 Pair-wise comparison of fabric splint and leather splint on AUSCAN and COPM and grip strength measures.

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

  Outcome measure Mean difference SD P
AUSCAN Pain 4.1 13.9 .149
  Stiffness .29 3.7 .694
  Function 3.7 16.9 .287
COPM Performance -0.8 1.4 .008
  Satisfaction -.68 1.3 .015
  Grip strength, kg -1.3 3.87 .107
  1. P values reflect significance of the difference between splints 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.
