Abstract : This paper presents a numerical analysis of the state of stress in a new type of splint used for carpal arthrodesis. Using the finite element method we evaluated the state of stress of the splint and the respective bones in two important load cases. Results of the numerical analysis were confirmed by photoelasticity test applied to the splint model. A qualitative comparison of different approaches to modelling short bones used in the finite element method is also made.
