OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of three related test protocols on the power of a specific index relating to the difference between the eccentric to concentric strength ratios (DEC) to identify feigned shoulder flexion effort. DESIGN Seventeen normal subjects were instructed to exert maximal concentric and eccentric shoulder flexion effort and then to feign weakness, pretending the presence of a shoulder injury. RESULTS For both range of motions (ROMs), the DEC… CONTINUE READING
