Shoulder muscle activation and coordination in patients with a massive rotator cuff tear: An electromyographic study
Adaptive muscle activation strategies following a massive rotator cuff tear (MRCT) are inadequately understood, and the relationship among muscles during everyday activities has not been considered.Expand

Normal shoulder muscular activation and co‐ordination during a shoulder elevation task based on activities of daily living: An electromyographic study
Studies of normal shoulder function have often failed to consider the inter‐relationship between different muscle groups in activities relevant to daily life. Upper limb functional status wasExpand

Electromyographic assessment of muscle fatigue in massive rotator cuff tear.
Shoulder muscle fatigue has not been assessed in massive rotator cuff tear (MRCT). This study used EMG to measure fatigability of 13 shoulder muscles in 14 healthy controls and 11 patients with MRCT.Expand

ELECTROMYOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS OF SHOULDER GIRDLE MUSCLES DURING COMMON INTERNAL ROTATION EXERCISES.
BACKGROUND High level throwing performance requires the development of effective muscle activation within shoulder girdle muscles particularly during forceful internal rotation (IR) motions. STUDYExpand

Can grip strength be used as a surrogate marker to monitor recovery from shoulder fatigue?
Muscular fatigue impacts on normal shoulder function, which is particularly pertinent to throwing athletes. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between grip strength and shoulder muscleExpand

Evidence-Based Treatment of Madelung’s Deformity
Madelung’s deformity is a premature growth arrest of the volar ulna aspect of the radial growth plate leading to ulna overgrowth and a progressive wrist deformity. Treatment depends on the skeletalExpand

Muscle strength and its relationship with skeletal muscle mass indices as determined by segmental bio-impedance analysis
PurposeDespite increasing interest in bio-impedance analysis (BIA) for estimation of segmental skeletal muscle mass (SMM), published results have not been entirely convincing. Furthermore, a betterExpand

Patterns of muscle coordination during dynamic glenohumeral joint elevation: An EMG study
The shoulder relies heavily on coordinated muscle activity for normal function owing to its limited osseous constraint. However, previous studies have failed to examine the sophisticatedExpand

Electromyographic Analysis of the Shoulder Girdle Musculature During External Rotation Exercises
Background: Implementation of overhead activity, a key component of many professional sports, requires an effective and balanced activation of the shoulder girdle muscles, particularly duringExpand

Critiquing operative fracture fixation: the development of an assessment tool
PurposeAssessments are fundamentally important for training surgeons. Currently, there are no formal means of assessing operative fracture fixation. An assessment tool has been developed which can beExpand
