  • Loading of the wrist

    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.
