New paper: Motion analysis assessment of alterations in the scapulo-humeral rhythm after throwing in baseball pitchers

26 Apr 2013

Throwing a baseball requires a coordinated sequence of scapula and humerus movements also called scapulo-humeral rhythm (SHR). Fatigue associated with repetitive throwing can lead to scapular dyskinesia, a recognized cause of shoulder disability in pitchers and overhead athletes. A research paper, found on the Xsens research page presents the Xsens Xbus Kit, which can objectively assess scapular biomechanics and the effect of pitching on SHR.
