Advances in the in vivo measurement of normal and abnormal carpal kinematics

Orthop Clin North Am. 2001 Apr;32(2):219-31, vii. doi: 10.1016/s0030-5898(05)70244-3.


This article presents the development of an in vivo, three-dimensional methodology using markerless bone registration for examining the normal and abnormal kinematics of the wrist carpal bones. The resulting descriptions of three-dimensional kinematics from healthy patients and patients with documented unilateral scapholunate interosseous ligament injuries are briefly presented.
