The purpose of this study was to delineate, through electromyographic analysis, the function of the long head of the biceps at the shoulder. Ten shoulders were examined with dynamic electromyography. The long head of the biceps was instrumented with thin wire electrodes. The supraspinatus, infraspinatus, deltoid, brachialis, and brachioradialis were instrumented as controls. Because the biceps functions primarily as a forearm supinator and elbow flexor, a long arm brace was used to lock the… CONTINUE READING
