Modeling approach for malformation of joint

Post by richinma2005 » Fri Oct 25, 2013 10:52 am

A modeling approach to compute modification of net joint forces caused by coping movements in obstetric brachial plexus palsy.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24139445

RESULTS:
The results presented from the simulation show that an increased internal shoulder rotation position leads to increased net joint forces in the humerothoracic joint. A similar behavior is presented for the subjects suffering from brachial plexus palsy with an internal shoulder rotation position.
CONCLUSIONS:
The increased net joint forces are a possible reason for joint malformation in the humerothoracic joint caused by coping movements resulting from neuromuscular dysfunction
