The Parameters Related to Scapula as a whole, Acromion Process and Glenoid Cavity were Measured using Vernier Callipers.
Allowing the scapula to downwardly rotate will decrease the strength and efficiency of the arm motion; it will also cause a pinching of the supraspinatus tendon and subacromial/subdeltoid bursa as the acromion process of the scapula and head of the humerus approximate each other.
The ToMPAW Arm's shoulder was controlled by a joystick modified to provide force feedback to the user, which sensed movement of the acromion process.
3) The indirect mechanism, which is more common, is caused by a hyperabduction stress that directs the humeral neck superiorly against the acromion process, forcing the humeral head out of the glenoid fosse inferiorly.
For the posterior view four markers were used: One marker was placed 3 cm over the external occipital protuberance, the second one was located on the spinous process of the seventh cervical vertebra, and the remaining two markers were placed over each acromion process.
Biomechanical studies by Fukuda and coworkers (15) have shown that the conoid ligament plays a primary role in constraining anterior and superior displacement of the clavicle while the trapezoid is an important stabilizer in axial compression toward the acromion process.
Mid-arm circumference (cm) was measured at the level of mid-arm taking acromion process and olecranon as reference points.
The measurement was taken at the midpoint of the upper left arm, between the acromion process and the tip of the olecranon.
lateral to the omphalion (centre of the umbilicus)), chest (taken obliquely along the natural cleavage line of the pectoral between the axilla and nipple) and thigh (vertical fold taken midway between the inguinal crease and proximal border of the patella) skinfolds were measured for male subjects and the triceps (vertical fatfold taken midway between the olecrenon process and acromion process on the posterior aspect of the arm), suprailiac (slight diagonal fatfold taken immediately superior to the iliocristale) and thigh (vertical fold taken midway between the inguinal crease and proximal border of the patella) skinfolds were measured for female subjects.
The stationary arm was placed along the lateral midline of the humerus in line with the acromion process, and the moving arm was placed along the lateral midline of the radius in line with the radial styloid process.
Some authors recommended using an imaginary triangle to isolate the injection site (Rodger & King, 2000), while others suggested a site two finger breadths below the acromion process (Potter & Perry, 2005).
Biceps and triceps thicknesses were measured at the midpoint of the upper arm, between the acromion process and the tip of the bent elbow.
