Over 80% of activities of daily living involve grasping or seizing objects with the hand . The carpometacarpal (CMC) joints of the hand and wrist, the five joints that articulate the distal row of carpal bones and the proximal bases of the five metacarpal bones, are particularly important for prehensile tasks involving the opposition of the ring and little fingers with the thumb, such as during precision grasping. In addition, impairment of the CMC joints can weaken grip strength .
