Abstract

By using the electromagnetic tracking system, the kinematics of the glenohumeral joint in the shoulder complex was studied. With the location of the glenohumeral ligament insertions digitized, the change of ligament length and direction could then be calculated throughout a given movement. This technique provided a useful method for in vitro assessment of the capsuloligamentous constraints of the shoulder joint.
