In this study, a computational model of the wrist joint complex was developed and validated for investigating the biomechanical function of the joint in clinically representative scenarios. Joint behavior and kinematics were dictated only by osteoarticular contact, ligamentous constraints, and muscle loading. Three-dimensional articular surfaces of each bone were generated from CT images, while ligaments and muscles were modeled as linear springs and constant-magnitude force vectors… CONTINUE READING
