I am planning to investigate the association of knee osteoarthritis with
risk factors, such as muscle strength, obesity, occupationa stress, past
history of injury, and anatomical features of the lower limb.

I am currently seeking research articles which describe a correlation
between clinical measurement such as hand-grip and muscle strength of
the lower limb, using PubMed and Embase with password "muscle strength",
"lower limb", "correlation" and "hand grip". However, no suitable
measurement has been found, apart from one-leg standing test and
hand-held dynamometric procedure.

Does anyone know any article that describe about correlation between
hand-grip and muscle strength of the lower limb, or any clinical
measurement that is allow us to estimate muscle strength of the lower
limb by meas of simple procedure?

I thank all of you in advance for your help.
