Avoiding high‐risk rotator cuff loading: Muscle force during three pull‐up techniques
Shoulder rehabilitation and strength & conditioning programs should encourage incorporation of all three pull‐up variants with systematic progression to provide greater global strengthening of the torso and upper limb musculature.
Evaluation of a scapula spinal marker cluster to track the scapula kinematics during manual wheelchair propulsion
The goal of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of a spinal marker cluster to track the scapula motion during MWC locomotion.
Effect of the Pronated Pull-Up Grip Width on Performance and Power-Force-Velocity Profile
The choice of a free or a biacromial grip width does not affect the maximal strength, power-force-velocity relationship, nor the repetitions to failure during the PU exercise.
A New Neurocognitive Interpretation of Shoulder Position Sense during Reaching: Unexpected Competence in the Measurement of Extracorporeal Space
The shoulder has specific expertise in the measurement of the extracorporeal space during reaching movements that gradually decreases in impingement syndrome.
Injury Profile Among Street Workout Practitioners
In SW, the shoulder and back were the most injured body parts, with tendinopathy being the most frequent diagnosis, and a history of previous injuries along with vigorous physical activity was found to augment the odds of injury.


The association of scapular kinematics and glenohumeral joint pathologies.
The normal kinematics of the scapula and clavicle during arm elevation are reviewed, the evidence for abnormal scapular andClavicular kinemics in glenohumeral joint pathologies is reviewed, and potential biomechanical implications and mechanisms of these kinematic alterations are reviewed.
Scapular kinematics in constrained and functional upper extremity movements.
Care needs to be taken when comparing and generalizing scapular kinematic data from constrained humeral movements and applying it to functional humeralmovements.
Effects of muscle fatigue on 3-dimensional scapular kinematics.
Shoulder function and 3-dimensional scapular kinematics in people with and without shoulder impingement syndrome.
The kinematic differences found in subjects with impingement may represent scapulothoracic compensatory strategies for glenohumeral weakness or motion loss and support rehabilitation approaches that focus on strengthening and restoring flexibility.
Measurement of subacromial impingement of the rotator cuff.
