Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Little is known about the mechanical effects that total wrist arthroplasty has on the arthritic wrist. Many clinical studies have presented poor long term functionality with high revision rates. This study presents a finite element model aimed to map the load transfer changes in the wrist after a total wrist arthroplasty.
