Brief Summary:
Development of reliable and objective evaluation methods is required for natural upper-extremity tasks. Three-dimensional imaging measurement techniques are a powerful tool for quantitative assessment of multijoint movements.

Group/Cohort
20 healthy volunteers
Dupuytren disease
10 patients dupuytren disease
Tendon pathology
10 patients with tendon pathology
wrist osteoarthritis
10 patients with wrist osteoarthritis



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Joint angle of finger and wrist (Vicon) [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Position of the Skin markers be measured with the Vicon cameras and the Joint angles will be calculated with matlab program. Maximum range of motion will be compared between first and second measurement.

  2. Joint angle of finger and wrist (Goniometer) [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Maximum range of motion will be compared between first and second measurement


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective functional parameters: - daily activities: open a bottle, open a glass, type 3 words, write 3 words, turn a key, pick up small object, move heavy object (1/3kg), dart-throwing motion [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Position of the Skin markers be measured with the Vicon cameras during daily activities and the joint angles will be calculated with matlab program.

  2. Subjective functional parameters: - Mayo Wrist Score - Krimmer Wrist Score - Short Version of the Disability of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand questionnaire (QuickDASH) [ Time Frame: 36 months ]

    Mayo Wrist Score: On a scale from 0-100 points, 91-100 points is a excellent result, 81-90 a good results, 65-80 a satisfactory result and less than 65 points a poor result Krimmer Wrist Score: On a scale from 0-100 points, more than 80 is a excellent result, 65-80 a good result, 50-65 a satisfactory result and 0-50 a poor result.

    QuickDASH: At least 10 of the 11 items must be completed for a score to be calculated. The assigned values for all completed responses are simply summed and averaged, producing a score out of five. This value is then transformed to a score out of 100 by subtracting one and multiplying by 25. This transformation is done to make the score easier to compare to other measures scaled on a 0-100 scale. A higher score indicates greater disability.
