OBJECTIVES (1) To develop a methodology to determine the trajectories of the digital flexor tendons using MRI. (2) To examine changes in tendon trajectories due to wrist posture, with and without pinch force. (3) To calculate the radius of curvature of the flexor tendons and note implications for contact forces on the median nerve. (4) To assess the use of Landsmeer's models at the wrist. DESIGN Finger flexor tendon centroids were digitized from magnetic resonance images of the carpal tunnel… CONTINUE READING
