The dart-throwing motion (DTM) plane can be defined as a plane in which wrist functional oblique motion occurs, specifically from radial extension to ulnar flexion. Most activities of daily living are performed using a DTM. The DTM utilizes the midcarpal joint to a great extent. Scaphotrapezio-trapezoidal anatomy and kinematics may be important factors that cause a DTM to be a more stable and controlled motion. During a DTM, there is less scaphoid and lunate motion than during pure flexion-extension or radioulnar deviation. Clinically, a DTM at the plane approximately 30 degrees to 45 degrees from the sagittal plane allows continued functional wrist motion while minimizing radiocarpal motion when needed for rehabilitation.
