A cross-sectional study, recruiting 65 children of age group 12-17 years with purposive sampling to perform non-equilibrium coordination tests. Participants were asked to perform all tests one by one and the time taken (in seconds) was noted. The mean of three readings was obtained using a mobile based stop-watch. The normative reference values of finger to finger, finger to therapist finger, finger opposition, finger to nose and alternate nose to therapist finger comes out to be 2.28±0.65 seconds, 1.98±0.50 seconds, 2.14±0.52 seconds, 2.19 (2.12-2.41) seconds and 2.21 (2.14-2.44) seconds respectively.
