Welcome to the anatomical repository pages of the Dutch Shoulder Group. On these pages you can find information needed for musculoskeletal modeling of the upper extremity such as muscle insertion sites, joint rotation axes and centers, as well as muscle contraction parameters.


Of course, data are far from complete: as insight developed, the need for parameters not previously measured also grew. However, at this point this is what we have ..... and have to use. But additions to the site, in the form of data, or links are certainly appreciated. In the future, we hope to extend this set ourselves with hand- and neck data.


The idea of publishing these data on the web site is of course that these can be freely used. Also, although we put a major effort in ascertaining their correctness, this can be no means be guaranteed. Therefore, if you intend to use these data, be free to do so, but we do not accept responsibility for errors and their possible consequences. We would appreciate appropriate references, though.
