  • Thesis available: Finger exercises with anatomical constraints

    Dear list readers

    The following thesis has become available.

    Author: J.N.A.L. Leijnse
    Title: Finger exercises with anatomical constraints
    Subtitle: A methodological analysis of non-pathological anatomical variations
    as causes of hand problems in musicians
    Institution: Erasmus University, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
    Date: December 6, 1995

    The thesis contains the following 15 articles of which four have been
    published in the Journal of Biomechanics.

    1. Biomechanics of the finger with anatomical restrictions - the significance
    for the exercising hand of the musician.
    2. The hand of the musician: the kinematics of the bidigital finger system with
    anatomical restrictions.
    3. A two dimensional kinematic model of the lumbrical in the human finger.
    4. A graphic analysis of the biomechanics of the massless bi-articular chain.
    5. The controllability of the unloaded finger with superficial or deep flexor.
    6. Why the lumbrical muscle should not be bigger - a force model of the
    lumbrical muscle in the unloaded human finger.
    7. Measuring force transfers in the deep flexors of the musician's hand -
    theoretical analysis, clinical examples.
    8. Measuring force transfers in the deep flexors of the musician's hand -
    device and systematic measuring errors.
    9. Anatomic factors predisposing to focal dystonia in the musician's hand.
    10. A generic model of a muscle group - applications to the muscles of the
    forearm.
    11. The morphology of holes in aponeuroses caused by perforating nerves or
    vessels at the medial epicondyle of the elbow.
    12. Anatomical interconnections within the M. flexor digitorum profundus - the
    significance for the hand of the musician.
    13. Connections between the tendons of the M. flexor digitorum profundus
    formed by the synovial sheaths in the carpal tunnel.
    14. A generic model of the anatomic variability in the M. flexor digitorum
    profundus, M. flexor pollicis longus, and Mm. lumbricales complex - the
    significance for the musician.
    15. Total surgical clearance of intertendinous connections in a musician's
    hand, including cleavage of bitendinous lumbrical origins - a case study.
