A new method has been designed for direct measurement of the two-dimensional range of motion (ROM) of the finger. The two-dimensional method encompasses the postures imposed by various combinations of contraction and relaxation of the finger motors, so that an individual muscle injury or adhesion might be more easily detected. The figures and values… (More)
