Flexion, extension, and abduction are strictly not defined. Refer this paper for details.

[Expression of the data]
Graph of a linear coefficient of the viscous passive resistance to joint angle
Function not shown

[Characteristics]
  • These coefficients around the flexion and extension axis of the shoulder are projected on a cross-sectional plane.

  • The posture of the shoulder abduction changes in five stages.

  • The information of the subjects does not exist.
