Abstract: The growing interest in distal radioulnar (DRUJ) disorders underlines the need for further improved evaluations of treatment outcome. Load-bearing and optimising torque are important features of the DRUJ, but they are rarely measured when assessing DRUJ interventions. To make these measurements easily accessible in clinical situations, we developed two methods for quantifying lifting strength and forearm torque. In this thesis, we report the outcomes after surgery with two types of DRU... more
