  • range of motion in sheep shoulder

    Dear Biomechanists,

    I am planning to do some testing on rotator cuff repairs using sheep shoulders.
    What we would like to know is the typical range of motion of the
    scapolo-humeral articulation in sheep. Does anybody know (1) the maximum
    angles attainable; (2) the angles between the humerus and scapula when the
    sheep is standing on all fours; (3) for which position of the
    scapolo-humeral articulation during cyclical motions, such as walking,
    results in the greatest activity of the infraspinatus muscle?

    I have searched PubMed and other literature on the anatomy of mammals, but
    I have had no luck.

    I will be glad to list a survey of the responses.

    Thanks for your efforts.
