Ambulatory assessment of shoulder abduction strength curve using a single wearable inertial sensor

Pietro Picerno, PhD, et al.

We studied a new technique for assessing dysfunction in human joints affected by injuries. This technique measures muscle force throughout a joint???s range of motion. This is essential for assessing damage and performing interventions that avoid overloading the muscle-tendon structure during rehabilitation. Current assessments measure forceangle curves using cumbersome and expensive dynamometers. Our aim was to assess strength curves using the latest technology in the movement analysis field: a single, wireless, and wearable inertial sensor that can be used by clinicians as a routine diagnostic tool for assessing the functional recovery of a joint.
