Table 1 Substitution of muscle forces in the biomechanical setup by weight loading of tendons and tendon groups

From: Wrist movements induce torque and lever force in the scaphoid: an ex vivo study

Number of tendons Tendon group Substitution weight
1 Flexor carpi radialis 10 N
1 Flexor pollicis longus 5 N
8 Flexor digitorum superficialis and profundus 5 N
1 Flexor carpi ulnaris 10 N
2 Extensor pollicis brevis and abductor pollicis longus 10 N
1 Extensor carpi ulnaris 10 N
