Abstract
We have used transmission ultrasound imaging (TUS) with the SRI camera to visualize the index finger flexor tendons in live hands during flexion-extension movements. The digitised data on tendon trajectory is analysed to obrtain tendon curvature. Assuming the tendon to be frictionless, the relative transverse focuses on the tendon are computed. The distribution, indicate how tendon force may be transmitted to the bone to cause movement.
