Because of power restraints and the desire to prevent any component from spanning the wrist joint
, magnetic position sensors were chosen for this application.
In time, fibrous tissue would form around the wrist joint

in chronic polyarthritis: a new classification based on the type of destruction in relation to the natural course and the consequences for surgical therapy].
Additional studies have examined application of the goniometer to the wrist joint
Initial conventional x-ray of fore-arm with elbow and wrist joint
showed osseous band at distal radio-ulnar joint (Fig.
