Özet

Purpose: The functional use of the upper extremities in daily living activities has become important in the later ages with the increasing life expectancy of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). This study aimed to assess manual ability and upper limb performance of nonambulatory children with DMD, and to determine their relationship with factors that might affect ability and performance.
