Neuronal activity in somatosensory cortex of monkeys using a precision grip. III. Responses to altered friction perturbations. (1/402)

The purpose of this investigation was to examine the activity changes in single units of the somatosensory cortex in response to lubricating and adhesive coatings applied to a hand-held object. Three monkeys were trained to grasp an object between the thumb and index fingers and to lift and hold it stationary within a narrow position window for 1 s before release. Grip forces normal to the skin surface, load forces tangential to the skin surface, and the displacement of the object were measured on each trial. Adhesive (rosin) and lubricant (petroleum jelly) coatings were applied to the smooth metal surface of the object to alter the friction against the skin. In addition, neuronal activity evoked by force pulse-perturbations generating shear forces and slip on the skin were compared with the patterns of activity elicited by grasping and lifting the coated surfaces. Following changes in surface coatings, both monkeys modulated the rate at which grip forces normal to the skin surface and load forces tangential to the skin surface were applied during the lifting phase of the task. As a result, the ratio of the rates of change of the two forces was proportionately scaled to the surface coating properties with the more slippery surfaces, having higher ratios. This precise control of normal and tangential forces enabled the monkeys to generate adequate grip forces and prevent slip of the object. From a total of 386 single neurons recorded in the hand area of the somatosensory cortex, 92 were tested with at least 1 coating. Cell discharge changed significantly with changes in surface coating in 62 (67%) of these cells. Of these coating-related cells, 51 were tested with both an adhesive and lubricating coating, and 45 showed significant differences in activity between the untreated metal surface and either the lubricant or the adhesive coating. These cells were divided into three main groups on the basis of their response patterns. In the first group (group A), the peak discharge increased significantly when the grasped surface was covered with lubricant. These cells appeared to be selectively sensitive to slip of the object on the skin. The second group (group B) was less activated by the adhesive surface compared with either the untreated metal or the lubricated surface, and they responded mainly to variations in the force normal to the skin surface. These cells provide useful feedback for the control of grip force. The third group (group C) responded to both slips and to changes in forces tangential to the skin. Most of these cells responded with a biphasic pattern reflecting the bidirectional changes in load force as the object was first accelerated and then decelerated. One hundred sixty-eight of the 386 isolated neurons were tested with brief perturbations during the task. Of these, 147 (88%) responded to the perturbation with a significant change in activity. In most of the cells, the response to the perturbation was shorter than 100 ms with a mean latency of 44.1 +/- 16.3 (SD) ms. For each of the cell groups, the activity patterns triggered by the perturbations were consistent with the activity patterns generated during the grasping and lifting of the coated object.  (+info)

Control of fingertip forces in multidigit manipulation. (2/402)

Previous studies of control of fingertip forces in skilled manipulation have focused on tasks involving two digits, typically the thumb and index finger. Here we examine control of fingertip actions in a multidigit task in which subjects lifted an object using unimanual and bimanual grasps engaging the tips of the thumb and two fingers. The grasps resembled those used when lifting a cylindrical object from above; the two fingers were some 4.25 cm apart and the thumb was approximately 5.54 cm from either finger. The three-dimensional forces and torques applied by each digit and the digit contact positions were measured along with the position and orientation of the object. The vertical forces applied tangential to the grasp surfaces to lift the object were synchronized across the digits, and the contribution by each digit to the total vertical force reflected intrinsic object properties (geometric relationship between the object's center of mass and the grasped surfaces). Subjects often applied small torques tangential to the grasped surfaces even though the object could have been lifted without such torques. The normal forces generated by each digit increased in parallel with the local tangential load (force and torque), providing an adequate safety margin against slips at each digit. In the present task, the orientations of the force vectors applied by the separate digits were not fully constrained and therefore the motor controller had to choose from a number of possible solutions. Our findings suggest that subjects attempt to minimize (or at least reduce) fingertip forces while at the same time ensure that grasp stability is preserved. Subjects also avoid horizontal tangential forces, even at a small cost in total force. Moreover, there were subtle actions exerted by the digits that included changes in the distribution of vertical forces across digits and slight object tilt. It is not clear to what extent the brain explicitly controlled these actions, but they could serve, for instance, to keep tangential torques small and to compensate for variations in digit contact positions. In conclusion, we have shown that when lifting an object with a three-digit grip, the coordination of fingertip forces, in many respects, matches what has been documented previously for two-digit grasping. At the same time, our study reveals novel aspects of force control that emerge only in multidigit manipulative tasks.  (+info)

Trapeziectomy for basal thumb joint osteoarthritis: 3- to 19-year follow-up. (3/402)

A consecutive series of 40 trapeziectomies in 30 patients with basal thumb joint osteoarthritis was reviewed. Sixteen thumbs had pan-trapezial and 24 thumbs trapeziometacarpal osteoarthritis. Simple excision without soft tissue interposition was performed by the same surgeon using an identical surgical technique. Twenty-eight patients were female (mean age 57 years) with a mean follow-up of 11 (3-19) years. Twenty-eight patients were satisfied with their operation, with 26 thumbs being pain free. Thumb pinch strength was improved by 40% compared to preoperative values, but still remained 22% weaker than the non-operated side.  (+info)

Holt-Oram syndrome revisited. Two patients in the same family. (4/402)

Holt-Oram syndrome was first described in 1960 as an association of familial heart disease and musculoskeletal abnormalities. The most important findings include atrial septal defects, atrioventricular conduction abnormalities, vascular hypoplasia, and upper limb musculoskeletal deformities. We report two patients with this syndrome in the same family and discuss the variability of the musculoskeletal abnormalities and their association with the cardiac morphologic defects. Both patients in this study had associated eosinophilia, which has not been reported in the literature.  (+info)

Activity-dependent conduction block in multifocal motor neuropathy. (5/402)

Patients with multifocal motor neuropathy may complain of muscle fatigue, even though the degree of conduction block assessed at rest has improved with treatment. To explore the mechanism involved, we examined changes in muscle force during maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) and monitored conduction block before and after MVC in five patients with multifocal motor neuropathy. The results were compared with those for the contralateral unaffected homonymous muscles. For one patient, who had bilateral involvement, a normal subject of a similar age and stature served as the control. Results of conduction studies were also compared with those from six patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) with similar compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitudes after proximal stimulation. During MVC for 60 s, the affected muscles developed prominent fatigue; the force at the end of contraction compared with the initial force was significantly lower for the affected muscles [42 +/- 19% (mean +/- standard deviation) of the initial force] than for the control muscles (94 +/- 9%; P = 0.01). After MVC, the amplitude ratio of CMAPs after proximal versus distal nerve stimulation transiently decreased to 19 +/- 14% of that before MVC in the affected muscles, but not in the control muscles (94 +/- 3.8% of that before MVC) and in patients with ALS (95 +/- 6.7%). In one patient with a focal lesion in the forearm, nerve excitability was monitored at the lesion site before and after MVC for 120 s. There were significant increases in axonal threshold (approximately 48%) and supernormality (approximately 135%) immediately after MVC, suggesting that the axonal membrane had undergone hyperpolarization and, by extrapolation, that this had precipitated the conduction block. This study is the first to show that activity-dependent conduction block plays a role in human disease by causing muscle fatigue.  (+info)

Randomized controlled trial of nettle sting for treatment of base-of-thumb pain. (6/402)

There are numerous published references to use of nettle sting for arthritis pain but no randomized controlled trials have been reported. We conducted a randomized controlled double-blind crossover study in 27 patients with osteoarthritic pain at the base of the thumb or index finger. Patients applied stinging nettle leaf (Urtica dioica) daily for one week to the painful area. The effect of this treatment was compared with that of placebo, white deadnettle leaf (Lamium album), for one week after a five-week washout period. Observations of pain and disability were recorded for the twelve weeks of the study. After one week's treatment with nettle sting, score reductions on both visual analogue scale (pain) and health assessment questionnaire (disability) were significantly greater than with placebo (P = 0.026 and P = 0.0027).  (+info)

Effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on movement-related cortical activity in humans. (7/402)

Several lines of evidence suggest that low-rate repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the motor cortex at 1 Hz reduces the excitability of the motor cortex and produces metabolic changes under and at a distance from the stimulated side. Therefore, it has been suggested that rTMS may have beneficial effects on motor performance in patients with movement disorders. However, it is still unknown in what way these effects can be produced. The aim of the present study is to investigate whether rTMS of the motor cortex (15 min at 1 Hz) is able to modify the voluntary movement related cortical activity, as reflected in the Beretischaftspotential (BP), and if these changes are functionally relevant for the final motor performance. The cortical movement-related activity in a typical BP paradigm of five healthy volunteers has been recorded using 61 scalp electrodes, while subjects performed self-paced right thumb oppositions every 8-20 s. After a basal recording, the BP was recorded in three different conditions, counterbalanced across subjects: after rTMS stimulation of the left primary motor area (M1) (15 min, 1 Hz, 10% above motor threshold), after 15 min of sham rTMS stimulation and following 15 min of voluntary movements performed with spatio-temporal characteristics similar to those induced by TMS. The tapping test was used to assess motor performance before and after each condition. Only movement-related trials with similar electromyographic (onset from muscular 'silence') and accelerometric patterns (same initial direction and similar amplitudes) were selected for computing BP waveforms. TMS- evoked and self-paced thumb movements had the same directional accelerometric pattern but different amplitudes. In all subjects, the real rTMS, but neither sham stimulation nor prolonged voluntary movements, produced a significant amplitude decrement of the negative slope of the BP; there was also a shortening of the BP onset time in four subjects. The effect was topographically restricted to cortical areas which were active in the basal condition, irrespective of the basal degree of activation at every single electrode. No changes in the tapping test occurred. These findings suggest that rTMS of the motor cortex at 1 Hz may interfere with the movement related brain activity, probably through influence on cortical inhibitory networks.  (+info)

Volar plate arthroplasty of the thumb interphalangeal joint. (8/402)

The fibrocartilaginous volar plate of the thumb interphalangeal joint is anatomically quite similar to the volar plate of the digital proximal interphalangeal joint. Due to this similarity, Eaton's technique of volar plate arthroplasty may also be utilized in fracture-dislocations of the thumb interphalangeal joint.  (+info)

The extensor pollicis longus muscle begins at the ulna and the interosseous membrane, a tough fibrous tissue that connects the ulna and the radius in the lower arm. It is a skeletal muscle and is controlled by the motor nervous system.
The extensor pollicis longus arises from the dorsal surface of the ulna and from the interosseous membrane,[1] next to the origins of abductor pollicis longus and extensor pollicis brevis.[2]. Passing through the third tendon compartment,[1] lying in a narrow, oblique groove on the back of the lower end of the radius,[3] it crosses the wrist close to the dorsal midline before turning towards the thumb using Listers tubercle on the distal end of the radius as a pulley.[2]. It obliquely crosses the tendons of the extensores carpi radialis longus and brevis, and is separated from the extensor pollicis brevis by a triangular interval, the anatomical snuff box in which the radial artery is found.[3]. At the proximal phalanx, the tendon is joined by expansions from abductor pollicis brevis and adductor pollicis.[2]. The tendon is finally inserted on the base of the distal phalanx of the thumb.[1]. 6.7 to 9.7 centimetres (2.6 to 3.8 in) in length, the tendon passes through a long and superficial ...

The force and/or motion transmissibility and the analyticity of inverse kinematics for a thumb mechanism depend on thumb configuration. This paper presents a general framework for the thumb configuration and performance evaluation in the design of dexterous robotic hand. The thumb configuration is described by the functional analysis of human thumb, and the thumb of robotic hand is generalized into 15 configurations. A performance evaluation method is proposed based on kinetostatic and dynamic dexterity as well as workspace. The kinetostatic dexterity is based on a Jacobian matrix condition number (JMCN). A dynamic dexterity measure is presented via acceleration analysis, which keeps a clear geometric meaning. The proposed method is applied to evaluate the performance of three examples, which cover thumb configurations of most existing dexterous hands. Performance evaluation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method. Using these results and the proposed performance evaluation ...
A common malady of the thumb in the carpometacarpal (CMC) joint is osteoarthritis (OA), also known as basal thumb arthritis or trapeziometacarpal (TMC) arthritis. This affliction is often the result of ligament laxity or injury to the thumb, which then creates a cascade of arthritic effects. This study documents the benefits of Prolotherapy for 13 patients with TMC joint osteoarthritis in 17 of their thumbs. Specifically, Hackett-Hemwall dextrose Prolotherapy counteracts the tissue degeneration that leads to pain and stiffness by creating a healing cascade, which begins with inflammation and proceeds to connective tissue repair. During each treatment session, patients received an average of 10 injections of dextrose-a simple sugar used as a safe inflammatory agent-in the afflicted thumb joint and surrounding connective tissue. In addition, hGH was added to the intra-articular injections for its hormonal effects on cartilage growth. Using the VAS scale, patients were asked to rate pain and ...

With the thumb serving an important role in the function of the human hand, improving robotic prosthetic thumb functionality will have a direct impact on the prosthesis itself. So far, no significant work exists that examines the ranges of motion a prosthetic thumb should exhibit; many myoelectric prostheses arbitrarily select them. We question this design practice as we expect a significant functional volume reduction for performing certain activities vs. the maximum obtainable workspace. To this end, we compare and contrast four anatomically-accurate thumb models. We quantify their angular ranges of motion by generating point clouds of endeffector positions, and by computing their alpha-shape bounded volumes. Examining the function of the thumb for several grasps, we identify a 76% reduction of the required workspace volume vis-a-vis the maximum volume of a "generic" human thumb.. ...

The thumb is the first digit of the hand. When a person is standing in the medical anatomical position (where the palm is facing to the front), the thumb is the outermost digit. The Medical Latin English noun for thumb is pollex (compare hallux for big toe), and the corresponding adjective for thumb is pollical. The English word "finger" has two senses, even in the context of appendages of a single typical human hand: Any of the five digits. Any of the four terminal members of the hand, specifically those other than the thumb. Linguistically, it appears that the original sense was the broader of these two: penkwe-ros (also rendered as penqrós) was, in the inferred Proto-Indo-European language, a suffixed form of penkwe (or penqe), which has given rise to many Indo-European-family words (tens of them defined in English dictionaries) that involve or flow from concepts of fiveness. The thumb shares the following with each of the other four fingers: Having a skeleton of phalanges, joined by ...

Writing goofy-handed. Ive had a condition for a while now, which really plagued me at the beginning of the spring 2013 semester, in which my right thumb was causing me a lot of pain. My current ortho said he thinks a big injury mustve occurred to knock my thumb our of alignment and bone was grinding against bone. It was so painful at the start of school that I worried I wouldnt make it through my classes. Some history from an older post here. Treatment included getting a cortisone injection and being told to wear a thumb splint. No PT was prescribed, or exercises or alternative therapies. Surgery was actually the first suggestion I received. The doctor could feel bone grinding against bone in the base of my thumb and metatarsals. It was painful but the cortisone helped me through the entire semester. I got a second shot after the semester ended, but think working at B&N probably was harsh. Days on cash register caused aches despite wearing the splint.. I went back to the doctor last week, and ...

This was done at 0, 2, and 4 months. I have used 12.5% Dextrose. After I hyperextended my thumbs doing massage therapy techniques on patients (Yah, I was an amateur), I ended up with distal thumb joints that would sublux and give sharp pains. I injected them 3 times and wore a splint and you can feel the joint stiffening up by one- two weeks. You dont have to wait a month - every 2 weeks would do (I gave them weekly but I didnt want to be stuck with a splint forever). I can feel the sharp pains rarely if I overdo it so I would say they are at least 50% tighter. On the thumb carpal -metacarpal join they do tighten things up but the treatments are painful which means you might have tight sore joints. But then, steroid must be useful though attention has to be paid to the thumb muscles ...
Purpose: Basal joint arthritis, or carpometacarpal (CMC) osteoarthritis, of the thumb is very common, particularly in the elderly. Morbidities include pain, decreased range of motion, and decreased strength. Nonsurgical treatments for CMC arthritis include oral analgesics, splinting, and steroid injection. In multiple recent trials, botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) injection has been shown to be an efficacious nonsurgical option for osteoarthritis of large joints, including those that have failed steroid injections. To our knowledge, the efficacy of BTX-A injection in thumb CMC arthritis has not been examined.. Methods: Patients with a clinical and radiographic diagnosis of basal joint arthritis who are appropriate and willing candidates for injection therapy will be selected. The primary symptom indicating need for injection would be pain not controlled with more conservative measures (e.g. nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), splinting, physical therapy, etc.) Weakness and impaired ...

The New Forza Thumb Rest for Saxophone.. I first approached Ton Kooiman to ask if his clever clarinet thumb rests would work with the soprano saxophone. Like most soprano players I know, I have acute problems with pain in my right thumb and wrist; transferring the weight down to the joint of thumb and first finger might have been a good solution. Ton explained why this wasnt practical but that I should try his Forza Thumb rest.. I managed to fit the Forza to my Selmer MK VI tenor easily. The first thing I noticed was that it allows the thumb to lie in a natural position; at the same level as the first finger, as it would if you were holding a paper cup full of hot coffee! The thumb rest of most saxophones forces the thumb downwards. Indeed, my perceptions of most saxophone design is the tone holes must go here, here and here so we will just have to stick the thumb rest wherever there is space left for it! I bought a second Forza for my Yanagisawa curved soprano and found that I could position ...
Never slide head-first into first base, kids.. Josh Hamilton is the latest cautionary tale against this practice, injuring his left thumb in the Angels 5-3 loss to the Mariners Tuesday night. An MRI exam on Wednesday revealed a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in the thumb, according to reports, as well as a torn capsule. Hamilton will undergo surgery in the next few days and the injury is expected to keep him out for six to eight weeks.. The play occurred in the seventh inning as Hamilton was trying to beat out a grounder to shortstop. He seemed all right at first, popping right up after getting thrown out and jogging back to the dugout with a sheepish smile. Perhaps he just wanted to get off the field as soon as possible. Hamilton asked manager Mike Scioscia to pinch-hit for him in the ninth, as the left thumb swelled up and made it difficult to swing hard.. "It hurts," Hamilton told reporters, including the L.A. Times Mike DiGiovanna, after the game. "It stinks that it ...

Heres how it works: attach the 3D-printed prosthetic to your hand and it gives you an extensible thumb on the opposite side of your natural one. Motors are stuffed into a wristband that connects to the thumb. And you put pressure-sensitive controllers into your shoes, allowing you to send commands to the thumb with your feet. The signals are carried via a Bluetooth wireless connection.. Once you get the hang of using the thumb, you should be able to use it to grasp items or just about anything else youd use your thumb for, including flicking pages in a book (or on a tablet), or even hitting hard-to-reach spots on a musical instrument.. I suspect that last one would take some serious getting used to, but Clode tells Deezen part of the reason she decided to make a device that you control with your feet is that people are already used to coordinating hand-and-foot actions when doing things like driving a car. With a bit of practice, this type of prosthetic could make it possible to play guitar or ...
By extension from the movie review usage,[16] many websites (including Facebook) allow users to approve or disapprove of items, such as comments in a forum, products in a store, or even other peoples reviews of movies, books, products, etc., by choosing to click either a thumbs-up or thumbs-down button. In the aggregate, this serves as an evaluation system. Other users may then see the total number of thumbs up and thumbs down given to an item, or may simply see the number which is produced by subtracting thumbs down from thumbs up. (In the latter case, an item which has received exactly ten of each would read as having a rating of zero, rather than one of +10/-10.) Often, users may view a list of items in order of popularity, as ranked by this metric. Hitchhikers in the West traditionally use a thumb gesture to solicit rides from oncoming vehicles, although in this presentation the arm is generally outstretched with the palm and closed fingers facing the motorist. The gesture is usually ...

CHICAGO -- Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, wearing a soft wrist brace, downplayed the severity of a contusion near the base of his left thumb that forced him out of the Dodgers 3-0 win over the Cubs on Saturday. Puig was injured making a diving catch in right field on Starlin Castros line drive in the bottom of the seventh inning, his glove hitting the ground and rolling over as he landed. He remained in the game but was removed for the bottom of the eighth inning. He pointed to the skin webbing between the base of the thumb and index finger.

The thumb, unlike other fingers, is opposable, in that it is the only digit on the human hand which is able to oppose or turn back against the other four fingers, and thus enables the hand to refine its grip to hold objects which it would be unable to do otherwise. The opposable thumb has helped the human species develop more accurate fine motor skills. It is also thought to have directly led to the development of tools, not just in humans or their evolutionary ancestors, but other primates as well [5][6]. The thumb, in conjunction with the other fingers make humans and other species with similar hands some of the most dexterous in the world[7]. In addition, the opposable thumb has given rise to a popular gesture referred to as the "Thumbs-Up", a symbol of approval in western culture. ...

The thumb is the signifier of ones will power and just adjoined to the thumb is the Mount of Venus. The Mount of Venus is an indicator of love, pity, compassion, sexuality and vitality but in no way is the thumb associated to the mount of Venus and nor does it represent any aspect of the Mount of Venus.
