Eccentric Finger Extension With Resistance

Eccentric Finger Extension With Resistance

In this video, the motion of finger extension is occurring at the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) and interphalangeal (IP) joints. This motion is controlled by eccentric muscle contraction against the resistance from an elastic band. Eccentric metacarpophalangeal and interphalangeal joint extension is demonstrated from a fully flexed hand position as seen from a front or anterior view.
