Total Wrist

Restoration of wrist function is a major unmet need within distal extremity surgery. The KinematX device, invented by Scott Wolfe, M.D., hand and upper extremity surgeon at HSS, and Joseph J. Crisco, Ph.D., Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital, is the first of its kind in that it is a resurfacing of the midcarpal joint in the wrist, the joint that enables highly functional motion ‐‐ the so‐called “dart thrower’s motion.” KinematX Midcarpal Hemiarthroplasty received a CE mark in Europe and is marketed in the UK, France, Spain, Australia, and Switzerland.
