In human anatomy, the wrist is variously defined as 1 the carpus or carpal bones, the complex of eight bones forming the proximal skeletal segment of the hand; (2) the wrist joint or radiocarpal joint, the joint between the radius and the carpus; and (3) the anatomical region surrounding the carpus including the distal parts of the bones of the forearm and the proximal parts of the metacarpus or five metacarpal bones and the series of joints between these bones, thus referred to as wrist joints.

The purpose of this paper is to describe the development and testing of a 3-D local coordinate system for assessing wrist biomechanics during wheelchair propulsion. Vectors centered at the ulnar styloid define planes of the wrist and thus flexion/extension, radial/ulnar deviation, and supination/pronation can be determined. The three predominant forces occurring during the propulsion phase are a shear force acting ...

  • Performance Prospects of Subthreshold Logic Circuits

    The possibility of lowering the dissipation energy is addressed for the following conventional device technologies: multithreshold circuits, power management and subthreshold logic. In a multithreshold circuit, designers can assume that different circuit blocks can have different threshold voltages. They can set low threshold voltages for high‐speed circuit blocks and high threshold voltages for low‐power circuit blocks. This technique is widely applied to commercial integrated circuits (ICs). Circuit designers initially used multithreshold devices and power management to reduce the dissipation power of ICs. Reducing dissipation power by lowering the supply voltage is also a conventional design guideline, where metal oxide semiconductor field‐effect transistors (MOSFETs) are used in the conventional manner in the circuit. On the other hand, the subthreshold logic and near‐subthreshold logic approaches are quite different from the design idea of focusing on “ON” state performance. Circuit designers are now paying close attention to the quasi‐“OFF” state.

  • Introduction to Upper Limb Prosthetics

    This chapter overviews the current state of the art of commercial externally powered prostheses and outline current developments in research that will most likely have an important impact on future commercial prosthetic systems. It presents the requirements of advanced prostheses and discusses the rather large gap between commercial systems and systems in academic research. Since the prosthetic hand is a key component in upper limb prosthetics, the chapter mainly focuses on prosthetic hands. In fact, the lack of sufficiently powerful human-machine interfaces-or, more specifically, neural-machine interfaces-is the major limiting factor at the moment in upper limb prosthetics. Given the rather small number of upper limb amputees and the complexity of the advanced solutions discussed in this chapter as well as the excessive costs for clinical evaluation, there is no doubt that prosthetic products based on these technologies could be expensive.
