Scapular kinematics in healthy adults is well described in the literature but little is known on typical children. This study aimed to compare the three-dimensional (3-D) scapular kinematics and scapulohumeral rhythm during the elevation and lowering of the arm in the scapular plane in typical children and healthy adults. Twenty-six healthy adults (35.34±11.65 years, 1.70±0.10m, 70.00±12.30kg) and 33 typical children (9.12±1.51 years, 1.40±0.10m, 35.40±10.45kg) participated in this study. 3-D… CONTINUE READING
