Proceedings of a NATO Advance Research Workshop held in Brussels, Belgium, May 1992. Basic investigators from many countries report past efforts, describe new techniques, and explore future avenues of interactive research in anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, and radiology as applied to improved understanding of the workings of the hand and wrist. The volume is divided into four sections: material properties (8 papers); force analysis (12 papers); motion analysis (13 papers); and clinical applications (11 papers).
