Wrist

View this topic in
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.

Wrist biomechanics in 3-D local coordinate space during wheelchair propulsion

Proceedings of 18th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1996

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 ...

  • Silicon-gate CMOS frequency divider for electronic wrist watch

    An integrated complementary MOS transistor scale-of-two counter for applications in electronic wrist watches has been realized. Silicon-gate technology applied to a very simple but safe dividing circuit has resulted in a substantial reduction of the total area of the integrated structure with the following performance. At a supply voltage of 1.35 V the maximum frequency is 2 MHz and the dynamic power consumption per stage is 1.6 nW/kHz. The complementary substrate is obtained by a sealed-capsule low-surface concentration diffusion and doped oxides as impurity sources are used to allow simultaneous diffusion of both types of MOS transistors. A simple dynamic circuit derived from the basic structure is described.

  • Wrist biomechanics in 3-D local coordinate space during wheelchair propulsion

    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 from radial to ulnar styloid, a shear force acting from palmar to dorsal surface, and a compressive force acting along the long axis of the wrist and forearm. The largest moment acts in the direction of ulnar deviation, not flexion or extension. This study demonstrates the importance of using a 3-D local coordinate space for assessing wrist kinetics during wheelchair propulsion and further work will provide insight into possible injury mechanisms.

  • Recognition of EMG signal patterns by neural networks

    The paper tries to recognize EMG signals by using neural networks. The electrodes under the dry state are attached to wrists and then EMG is measured. These EMG signals are classified into seven categories, such as neutral, up and down, right and left, wrist to inside, wrist to outside by using a neural network. The neural network learns FFT spectra to classify them. Moreover, we perform the principal component analysis using the simple principal component analysis before we perform recognition experiments. It is shown that our approach is effective to classify the EMG signals by means of computer simulations.

  • A function description for the human upper limb pointing movements performance

    The human motor system is mechanically complex and need to be described by using a large number of degrees of freedom. The controlled operation of such a system requires a reduction of mechanical redundancy. The coordination and synergies among the muscles and joints can be used for the reduction. In this paper, synergy is discussed through the analysis and comparison of human upper-limb pointing movements. All movements were recorded by a Vicon 3D motion analysis system. The synergy in the pointing movement of upper-limb was found among the different joint angles. A function method is used to describe the pointing performance. The different joint angles can be fitted by the same function curve. The pointing movement performance can be determined by the fitting parameter vector and the start and end states. Based on this result, a typical motion pattern can be described by a smaller set of variables.

  • Dynamic transition motion from ladder climbing to brachiation for a multi-locomotion robot

    This paper describes a dynamic transition motion from ladder climbing to brachiation for a multi-locomotion robot (MLR). In our previous works, the static transition motion from ladder climbing to barchiation has been developed. However, the motion is based on stable static model. It is difficult to realize the flexible and fast movement. To solve these problems, a new dynamic transition motion is proposed to simplify the action steps and increase the motion speed. The gravity is used to adjust the speed of turning body motion when the left hand and left foot are considered, and a pendulum model is used in the motion planning for the MLR to catch the second horizontal bar. The motion step is simplified and the motion speed is increased significantly by using the proposed method. The simulation result is realized by using the open dynamic engine (ODE) software.

  • Humanoid arm kinematic modeling and trajectory generation

    Seeking joint trajectories of the human arm is a wide research problem. Due to the complexity of the human arm, some general simplifications have to be imposed when modeling joints and arm segments. With the simplification of the shoulder complex into a serial mechanism, the arm can be modeled as a redundant serial mechanism with 10 degrees of freedom and its inverse kinematics can be calculated using a generalized inverse. Proportional weighting and a secondary task allow us to generate arm movement that resembles human arm movement
