Soft Drink Can Test


Stopwatch, 3 unopened cans of soft drink and a strip of cardboard with six circles (8cm in diameter and 4cm apart) drawn/cut into it


  1. The participant sits at the table with the strip of cardboard in front of them
  2. A can of soft drink is placed in every second circle, starting from the side of the hand being tested
  3. The participant begins the test by grabbing the first can with their hand in the ‘thumbs up’ position
  4. When the stopwatch is started, the participant races to turn each can upside down as quickly as possible placing it within the adjacent circle
  5. They then return each can to its original position starting with the first can
  6. This process is repeated twice
