In this study, we examined the relationships between the consistency of hand use, exercise, and sports-related injuries as an indirect test of the hypothesis that the consistency of hand use is a reflection of general motor coordination. As we predicted, the consistent hand-use group (n = 23) exercised more, were more likely to follow a regular exercise schedule, and reported having experienced more sports-related accidents than their inconsistent hand-use peers (n = 23).
