Abstract

Rock climbing is a sport activity which solicited the fingers more than other any sport, leading to injuries typical for the rock climbers' hand. The biomechanical functioning of the finger is one of the most complicated problems of the human musculo-skeletal system. This paper describes the pathologies observed in rock climbing and the knowledge obtained thanks to biomechanical analysis for the evaluation and simulation for treatment and repair.
