Mechanically the wrist is the most complex joint in the body, providing a large range of motion in the flexion-extension and radial-ulnar deviation planes. By virtue of the constraints at the radiocarpal level, strong torque may be delivered to the grasping hand for work in the grasping mode through the rotational axis of the forearm. The intrinsic forces acting on the wrist are well distributed around the perimeter, while the extrinsic forces for the fingers are centralized to affect wrist… CONTINUE READING
