    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.
