  26. 26. Answer: M = 175N
  27. 27. In the next two slides you can see how Moments arerelevant in clinical practice.With a cuff deficient shoulder, arm elevation (flexion &abduction) are dependent entirely on the deltoidmuscle.By bending their elbow, the person reduces themoment of their arm (by shortening the distance the ofthe force from the shoulder). This reduces the Forcerequired by deltoid to elevate the arm. M = 350N M = 175N
  28. 28. Joint Reaction Force in practice•The joint reaction force (JRF) is a useful measure of joint stability•An imbalance in the force couples of the rotator cuff tendons alters the position, direction and magnitude of the JRF (Parsons et al. J Orthop Res, 2001)•It is also important in the process of
