Dear Dr. Claire T. Farley.

I have interest to your message and your research that is shown below when I saw your
message on biomech-list.
I will introduce myself at first. I am a graduated student at Dept. of orthopaedic
surgery, Tokai Univ. in JAPAN. But I am not a medical doctor. I graduated at
Dept. of bio-medical engineering, Tokai Univ. on March, 1996. At the present,
I am studying the biomechanics for the orthopaedic surgery. And my theme of
investigation is to develop a measurement system for joint laxity at the wrist joint
and to investigate the kinematics of the wrist joint. Although in this institution I
can study the biomechanics in the clinical view, it it difficult to study it in the
physiological view and for the rehabilitation. You may ask to me ,"Why do you
have chosen in your laboratory?" Thus, I need to say reason about that. That reason
is that in Japan, the research institution that conduct physiological biomechanics and
one for the rehabilitation is a little. And There is not clearly information about institution
of biomechanics. Thus, I have chosen my laboratory.

One of my objects is to investigate biomechanics for the rehabilitation (particular in
the prosthetics and orthotics). Therefore I want to study investigation that is conducted
in your institution. And I want to relate biomecanical study that I will have to the prosthetics
and orthotics. I hope that the study will useful for the rehabilitation.
If you say, "OK", I will prepare to go to your institution. And I will study acknowledge
that is required to me, harder. But there is problems that I will get a degree of the master in
medical at March ,1998 and it is long distance for me to you.

If you have interest to me or you remember me when I will get it, please write to me.
Thanks. Best your wishes!
Good bye.
