Abstract

A method that separates elbow and shoulder rotational contributions from the shoulder translational contributions to endpoint stiffness is used to study the effects of shoulder stability on endpoint stiffness. Results show that shoulder and trunk stability affects elbow and shoulder joint stiffness during postural tasks. Therefore, to understand how arm dynamics are controlled during functional tasks, it is necessary to study endpoint stiffness when the shoulder and trunk are free to move.
