An index of hand tremor is formulated from the data obtained from the analysis of the cylindrical grip strength. The tremor signal is extracted digitally from the data and the mean square power calculated. The frequency corresponding to half of the mean square power is compared against arthritic sufferers and normals. The application of such an index to the diagnosis and classification of Vibration White Finger is discussed.
