Abstract : Carrying angle is clinically defined as the angle made by the longitudinal axis of the arm and the forearm in full extension with the elbow supinated. One of the main factors which affect the value of carrying angle is hand grip strength. The main objective of this study is to investigate the relation between the carrying angle and hand grip strength in normal healthy children. 370 Normal Healthy Children of both sexes with mean of age 15-18 years examined in different schools. The Carrying angle was assessed by Digital goniometer on both sides (Dominant and non-Dominant) and hand grip strength was assessed by Camry Hand Held Dynamometer (model: EH101, USA), forearm length and forearm diameter were measured by tape measurement. The results showed that there was a statistical significant negative correlation between carrying angle and hand grip strength in dominant and non-dominant sides in both boys and girls and there was a statistical significant difference between carrying angle in both dominant and non-dominant sides in both sexes in favor of dominant side, negative correlation between carrying angle and forearm length and negative correlation between carrying angle and forearm diameter in both sides in girls but there is no relation between carrying angle and forearm diameter in boys. We conclude that the weakness of hand grip is related to the value of the carrying angle.
