These procedures included finger metacarpophalangeal joint arthroplasty using a Swanson silicone implant in five cases, arthrodesis of thumb metacarpophalangeal or interphalangeal joints in four, arthrodesis of finger proximal interphalangeal or distal interphalangeal joints in four, extensor tendon transfer in three, and synovectomy of the finger metacarpophalangeal joint in two cases.
Model was used to evaluate the kinematics of the phalanges such as angular displacement of interphalangeal joints. In order to evaluate the actual prosthetic finger movement, an experiment was conducted using a movement analysis software package, "Kinovea." At first, markers were placed on each digit of prosthetic index finger (see Figure 15).
