extensor digitorum

extensor digitorum

a muscle of the posterior forearm. It divides distally into four tendons that pass under the extensor retinaculum and diverge on the back of the hand, inserting into the second and third phalanges of the medial four fingers. It functions to extend the phalanges and, by continued action, the wrist. Also called extensor digitorum communis.

This finding was also supported when evaluating individual muscles as instrument B resulted in significantly more muscle load at the median and peak percentiles for both the extensor digitorum longus and the fiexor pollicis longus muscles when compared to the other instruments.

The MeCFES recorded the myoelectric activity from the 2/3 proximal part of the forearm at the level of innervation zones of extensor carpi radialis, extensor carpi ulnaris, and/or extensor digitorum communis as appropriate for the residual volitional activity of the patient.
However, the use of short muscles has been accompanied by some limitations: the fibers are difficult to classify using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), the muscles that are commonly used for experiments lack some fiber types, and much of the information available on muscle physiology and biochemistry was obtained using whole muscles, such as the soleus and extensor digitorum longus (EDL).
