In this study, the development process of a 3D unconstrained model of the interphalangeal (IP) joints is presented. The model agrees with the experimental studies. It can explain the change in the axis of the IP joints, the non-linear relationship between the tendon excursion and the flexion angle, the coordination between the IP joints and the tendon forces corresponding to the flexion angle. Furthermore, some controversial topics in the literature are investigated using the model, and four theses are developed.
