Shoulder joint and supraspinatus muscle motion test- 01
This is a test animation of the extension of the shoulder joint and the movement of the supraspinatus muscle. The supraspinatus muscle is one of the four muscles within the rotator cuff, and attaches to the greater tubercle of the humerus (arm bone). The rotator cuff muscles help to stabilize the shoulder joint and facilitate motion.
The goal of the animation I am working on is to depict the internal anatomy of the shoulder during a clinical diagnostic procedure, called the Neer’s Impingement Test. When a clinician performs this test, they are trying to see if the supraspinatus tendon is the cause of a patient’s pain when they extend their arm, often due to either the tendon becoming pinched or inflammation of the tendon.
The final animation will depict how to perform the Neer’s Impingement Test, and also what the internal anatomy looks like during the motion with normal and injured anatomy.
