Abstract

The purpose of this study was to (1) establish the biomechanical characteristics of the wrist muscle in normal Chinese adults, (2) provide scientific information for the evaluation of sports techniques, strength training, sports injuries, and rehabilitation, (3) provide basic data for muscle building, injury and rehabilitation in the general population. A total of 69 adults cross-country participated in this study. The following conclusions were drawn: (1) With increasing angular velocity, peak torque and total work declined, but average power increased, (2) Peak torque, total work and average power of wrist flexion were greater than wrist extension.
