Forearm Muscle Study in Professional Hockey Players
Electromyographic Analysis of Forearm Muscles in Professional Hockey Players During a Wrist Shot
This study will perform an EMG(electromyography) analysis of professional hockey players performing a wrist shot and synchronized to video. The study will last approximately one hour upon arrival at the study site. EMG sensors will be applied to both trail and lead forearms. Subject will be then be video recorded and asked to take 5 wrist shots. After the shots are taken, the EMG sensors will be removed and that will complete participation in the study.
Aim 1: Compare the activity of forearm muscles in the lead and trail arms hockey players during different phases of a wrist shot. An EMG will be placed on professional hockey players with video synchronization and be asked to take several wrist shots. The shots will be categorized into phases and analyzed to obtain the percentage muscle activity for each phase. The players will
-Professional or ex-professional hockey players
-No history of forearm and shoulder injury
-Pain free forearms and shoulders
