This study investigated the effect which various handle shapes produced on grip fatigue. This was measured through the calculation of a time to fatigue using a spectral analysis of the surface EMG of the grip muscles and through the determination of maximal pull forces in the upward direction. Significant differences existed between the handles in the maximum pull test, but not in the times to fatigue.
