Little has been published about the modelling of multibone joints such as the ankle and wrist compared to modelling studies of other joints such as the hip and knee. There are many challenges associated with the modelling of a multibone joint such as the wrist which can be credited for the lack of published papers. With increased computing power and improved software packages, the modelling of such multi bone joints has become more obtainable. The finite element method is a powerful tool to investigate the loading on such joints and can predict possible outcomes of surgical interventions. This paper describes the finite element modelling of the wrist joint and how the model can be used to predict in vivo loading.
