    The reverse shoulder implant is an implant for total replacement of the glenohumeral joint of patients suffering from osteoarthritis and with a damaged rotator cuff. The problem that arises with these conjoined ailments is that the displacement of the humeral head causes limited movement of the upper limb, with vertical mobility restricted to only allow for the arm to ascend to roughly the height of the shoulder. Attaching the ball to the scapula and the socket to the top of the humerus fixes the centre of rotation of the joint to increase the moment arm over the healthy shoulder's original position enabling patients' movement and dexterity to return. In this study the numerical evaluation... 

    Dynamic comparison of segmentary scapulohumeral rhythm between athletes with and without impingement syndrome

    Background: Patients who have shoulder pain usually have compensatory or contributory deviation of shoulder motion during arm elevation. In the traditional scapulohumeral rhythm, the share of the acromioclavicular (AC) and the sternoclavicular (SC) joint movements and also the role of AC internal rotation angle are unknown. Objectives: The main purpose of this study was to measure and compare the segmentary scapulohumeral rhythm (SSHR) during scapular arm elevation at a steady rotational speed in athletes with and without impingement syndrome. Patients and Methods: Using a speedometer, the maximum speed of arm elevation was measured in 21 men in each of the involved and uninvolved groups....
