Abstract:

The study is designed to answer three basic questions 1 does prior loading in terms of grip holding cause a significant decrement in tracking ability as measured on a pursuit rotor 2 if a decrement does exist, how long does it exist and 3 can this decrement be predicted if one knows the endurance to which the subjects have been loaded. Ten male subjects were tested on a pursuit rotor before and after being subjected to specific levels of loading on a grip holding device. Modified author abstract
