The paper introduces a simplified mathematical model of the human arm kinematics which is used to determine the workspace related to the reachability of the wrist. The model contains six revolute degrees of freedom, five in the shoulder complex and one in the elbow joint. It is not directly associated to the anatomical structure of the arm, but represents the spatial motion of two characteristic points, epicondylus lateralis and proc. styloideus. Use of this simplified model for the determination of reachable workspace offers several advantages versus direct measurement: (i) the workspace can be obtained in few minutes on a micro VAX II computer, (ii) patients with various injuries in various stages of recovery can be treated since only a few brief and simple measurements of the model's parameters are needed, and (iii) the calculated workspace includes complete information of the envelope, as well as inside characteristics
