Prior cadaveric shoulder rotator experiments showed that 90Adeg of external shoulder rotator abduction creates instability due to a lack of participation by the biceps brachialis, coracobrachialis, anterior deltoid, major pectoral, and subscapularis, all of which could favour stabilisation of the glenohumeral girdle.21 Furthermore, the ER are susceptible to major fatigue, which could be a source of variability during strength generation tests.22 Stabilisation straps typically increases reliability in strength as shown in related studies.23 FED does not have its own stabilisation straps.
They include the subscapularis, infraspinatus, supraspinatus and the teres minor.
