Abstract

The brachioradialis-extensor carpi radialis brevis (Br-ECRB) was simulated using an existing computer graphics-based model of the upper extremity. Model simulations indicate that the tight transfer increases the elbow range of motion where wrist extension can be maintained by 20°, which allows an individual to maintain an extended wrist and bring the hand close to the body.
