View Full Version : closed hand body segment parameters

I am trying to find any studies that have quantified the change in hand
center of mass, moment of inertia, radius of gyration, etc., due to closing
the hand. Haven't the standard cadaver equations have only used open hands
in the relaxed/anatomical position?
I am attempting to perform a linked segment analysis to predict forces
about the wrist joint while walking with a cane, and would appreciate it if
anyone could let me know of any similar studies.
Thank you,
