Biomechanics of the finger with anatomical restrictions--the significance for the exercising hand of the musician.

Author information

  • 1Department of Biomedical Physics, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.


Exercise and teaching of musicians presupposes in the individual the constitutive ability to freely execute the finger movements required in the playing of the instrument. However, in the hand anatomical restrictions may exist that limit the mobility of the fingers and, thereby, the possibility to determine their movements voluntarily. In this article we investigate the kinematics of a monodigital system in which restrictions are present.
