The mechanics of wrist movement is a current but relatively unexplored issue. Analysis of the current models and structure of the wrist joint shows that no general method of research exists for static analysis in the work place. In available references, the authors have made many special assumptions. In many respects, their modeling results did not confirm their experimental results.
