We are attempting to estimate the varus/valgus moment arms of
muscles at the elbow. To do this we need to better understand
the kinematics of varus/valgus deviation. We have found several
excellent articles in the literature concerning the anatomy and
flexion/extension characteristics of the elbow. However, we
have not been able to find any work that specifically describes
varus/valgus motion at the elbow.

We would greatly appreciate any information or references. If
there is sufficient interest, I will post a summary of the replies
I receive.

Thanks in advance,
