Shoulder subluxation is subjectively assessed by a palpable increase in the distance between the acromion and the humerus. Diagnostic ultrasound has potential for objective assessment of this distance. We used portable ultrasound to measure the distance between the acromion and greater tuberosity (acromion-greater tuberosity [AGT] distance) and tested the intrarater reliability in healthy individuals prior to testing on stroke patients. Thirty-two healthy participants aged 51-85 years (mean 64… CONTINUE READING
