Dear All,
we are testing a two part device. The two parts are connected with a
screw which should be tightened by the surgeon with a screwdriver.

Does anybody knows what is the max. torque an average man can produce with
a screwdriver? A biblio reference to be cited would be great. My medline
search was inconcludent; I guess I am not using the right keywords .......


thanks
