Including wrist bones in a six-bar mechanism improves the model's performance in tracking measured wing bone motion. This video compares the four-bar wing model with fused wrist bones and a full six-bar wing model with the measured bone locations (both mechanisms are shown as cartoons in Figure 6). The measured locations of the large bones are shown in grey, while the modeled bones are shown in color.
