The wrist joint is not like any other joint in the body, and biomechanically, the studies of wrist joint motion and force transmission presents very challenging engineering problems. Numerous sophisticated experimental and analytic methods have been developed or adapted particularly for a better understanding of the biomechanics of the wrist joint. A workshop for the purpose of critically reviewing these various engineering methods used for the studies, to synthesize the available findings and their clinical implications and applications, and to define the direction of future research is therefore felt to be timely by many investigators in the field. Documentation of such information will not only be important for individuals interested in wrist biomechanics and clinicians treating the wrist joint, but also beneficial to those involved in joint mechanics research in general.
