Method for the estimation of a double hinge kinematic model for the trapeziometacarpal joint using MR imaging.

In this paper, we propose a method to estimate the parameters of a double hinge model of the trapeziometacarpal joint (TMC) by MRI-based motion analysis. The model includes two non-orthogonal and non-intersecting rotation axes accounting for flexion-extension (F-E) and adduction-abduction (A-A). We evaluated the quality of the estimated model parameters in… (More)
