Description of intervention(s) / exposure
in a seated position subjects were asked to actively reach the end-range of shoulder axial rotation, on dominant shoulders, they performed three repetitions ovr a period of about 15 minutes. Humeral and scapular 3D positions were recorded by means of an electromagnetic tracking device. each subject was supervised by a physiotherapist. The task had an overall duration of 1 week, 1 hour each day.
