An anatomically realistic biomechanical model of the index finger was created using a force-based approach in order to predict the isometric fingertip force or dynamic movement based on the forces of 7 index finger musculotendons. The model was validated for static forces through comparison with experimental results from 5 cadaver specimens. The model reliably simulated the isometric fingertip force produced by loading individual tendons. The average error in fingertip force direction was less… CONTINUE READING
