Carpal kinematics during a wrist flexion/extension motion using high-speed videodata acquisition was investigated. A cadaver forearm was stabilized, allowing unconstrained excursion of the wrist for passive range of motion (ROM). The extensor and flexor pairs of the wrist were looped together and a 1-lb weight was attached to each pair, simulating synergistic muscle tension. Capitate/radius and third metacarpal/radius angles were calculated to determine which measurement would be best for… CONTINUE READING
