Abstract

Generating accurate simulations of the forces in the glenohumeral joint is essential for investigating normal and pathologic shoulder function. It forms the basis for evaluating fracture treatment, joint replacement design, and fixation. However, because of its complex anatomy and large range-of-motion, measuring the dynamic in-vivo forces and kinematics of the shoulder joint remains a challenging problem in the field of biomechanics. This paper describes the development and validation of a new combined testing medium for the glenohumeral joint.
