Biomechanical Analysis of Reach and Grasp

M. E. Johnson, K. –N An

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Reach to grasp function requires coordinated motion and strength of the upper extremities. Interaction between the three-dimensional motion of the shoulder complex and the elbow joint involved in reach function is analyzed based on kinematic principles. The biomechanical factors influencing grasp strength are examined.
