Collection of Data from Muscle Strength Testing

Principal Investigator:

The purpose of this protocol is to collect clinical data on muscle strength and function for informed clinical trial designs. The data will be collected from patients with muscular dystrophy during their visits to the Kennedy Krieger Institute Outpatient Center. We will request participants to share the results of their clinical muscle strength testing to be put in a research database. The muscle strength testing is routinely performed during a neurological evaluation and is a standard of care procedure. There is no research contact with the participant other than the consent process.
