Hi Netters,
I am trying to design a study that will show the differences among several
treatment methods (external fixator, pins, etc..) of distal radius fractures.
In order to design a clinically relevant study I am interested to apply
physiologic load across the wrist joint. In order to achieve this I need to
know how much force been transferred through wrist joint during several
movements of hand such as, extension and flexion of the hand, extension and
flexion of the fingers, gripping etc.. So far, I couldn't find any relevant
study to address these issues. Thanks for your attention
As usual I will post all the answers in this newsgroup.
