Median nerve displacement and strain in the carpal tunnel region were measured as functions of wrist position and carpal tunnel pressure in 5 cadaver forearms during simulated active finger flexion. The positions of spherical stainless-steel markers embedded within the median nerve and flexor digitorum superficialis of the long finger were measured in 3 dimensions by a radiographic direct linear transformation technique. Each limb was tested in 3 wrist positions (60 degrees extension, neutral… CONTINUE READING
