This study was performed to examine the effects of partial and total transection of the interosseous membrane (IOM) on load transfer in the forearm. Twenty fresh frozen forearms were instrumented with custom designed load cells placed in the proximal radius and distal ulna. Simultaneous measurements of load cell forces, radial head displacement relative to the capitellum, and local tension within the central band of the IOM were made as the wrist was loaded to 134 N with the forearm at 90… CONTINUE READING
