The purpose of this study was to characterize the scapulohumeral rhythm in the normal shoulder during dynamic elevation of the arm in the scapular plane and to compare the scapulohumeral rhythm during three different states of loading: 1) arm completely unloaded and passively elevated, 2) light load consisting of active elevation against the weight of the limb, and 3) heavy loading against maximal resistance. Electromagnetic tracking was used to record three-dimensional scapular and humeral… CONTINUE READING
