Abstract

We have used the motion analysis system to measure loss of finger movement after injury. The motion analysis system can provide information about the dynamic angular changes of each finger joint and the fingertip motion area for the injured finger. The latter can be used to calculate the percentage of fingertip motion area preserved. A stiff finger may show limited fingertip motion area with the finger joints tending to flex and extend together.
