Abstract

The motion of the eight carpal bones is extremely complex, and their accurate measurement has been hampered by their multiplanar rotations and translations, the irregularity of their shape, and the small magnitudes of movements. However, an accurate three-dimensional understanding of carpal motion is critical for academic and clinical purposes, and may play an important role in assessing surgical procedures or rehabilitation protocols.
