Summary In recent years, the reachable space concept has attracted the attention of many researchers as a mean of describing finger flexibility. Existing approaches such as exhaustive scanning or Monte Carlo methods to obtain the reachable space are resource-hungry techniques. In this paper, we introduce a novel approach to determine and quantify the reachable space of the finger. The approach was developed around a set of formulae determining the boundary of the reachable space. The Monte Carlo simulation is proposed to estimate the capacity of the reachable space. Using the new technique, reachable spaces can be visualised and quantified in order to effectively compare the functionality of different subjects and their therapeutic status. The performance of the proposed method was evaluated against the kinematic feed-forward approach. The computational cost to obtain the reachable space is significantly less than the standard kinematic feed-forward approach due to exclusive description of the reachable space boundary, unique to the proposed approach.
