The pivot shift test reproduces a complex instability of the knee joint following rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament. The grade of the pivot shift test has been shown to correlate to subjective criteria of knee joint function, return to physical activity and long-term outcome. This severity is represented by a grade that is attributed by a clinician(More)
BACKGROUND The WOSI (Western Ontario Shoulder Instability Index) is a self-administered quality of life questionnaire designed to be used as a primary outcome measure in clinical trials on shoulder instability, as well as to measure the effect of an intervention on any particular patient. It is validated and is reliable and sensitive. As it is designed to(More)
The pivot shift test is the only clinical test which correlates with knee function following rupture of the ACL. A grade is given to the pivot shift in a subjective manner, leading to efforts to quantify the bone movements and correlate them to the grade. However, the dynamic and unconstrained nature of the manoeuvre introduces important kinematic(More)
BACKGROUND Anterior shoulder stabilization surgery with the arthroscopic Bankart procedure can have a high recurrence rate in certain patients. Identifying these patients to modify outcomes has become a focal point of research. PURPOSE The Instability Shoulder Index Score (ISIS) was developed to predict the success of arthroscopic Bankart repair. Scores(More)
The pivot shift test is the only clinical test that has been shown to correlate with subjective criteria of knee joint function following rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament. The grade of the pivot shift is important in predicting short- and long-term outcome. However, because this grade is established by a clinician in a subjective manner, the pivot(More)

The scapulo-humeral rhythm quantifies shoulder joint coordination during arm elevation. The common method calculates a ratio of gleno-humeral (GH) elevation to scapulo-thoracic upward rotation angles. However the other rotations also contribute to arm elevation. The objective is to propose a 3D dynamic scapulo-humeral rhythm calculation method including all(More)
BACKGROUND Some patients with rotator cuff tears feel pain without functional limitation, whereas others show a decrease in range of motion. To investigate this distinction, the scapulohumeral rhythm was used to conduct a functional evaluation of shoulder joints' coordination. The objective was to characterize patients according to their active range of(More)
BACKGROUND Type IV superior labral anterior to posterior (SLAP) lesions, which are superior labral detachments associated with Bankart tears, are reported to occur in up to 25% of recurrent shoulder instability patients. However, the clinical implications of this finding are debatable. PURPOSE To determine whether there are any functional differences(More)
Shoulder motion analysis provides clinicians with references of normal joint rotations. Shoulder joints orientations assessment is often based on series of static positions, while clinicians perform either passive or active tests and exercises mostly in dynamic. These conditions of motion could modify joint coordination and lead to discrepancies with the(More)
