Elbow Angle during a Simulated Task Requiring Fine Psychomotor Control.
Colangelo, Gary A.; And Others
Journal of Dental Education, v55 n12 p785-88 Dec 1991
This study examined elbow angle during a fine motor task (threading a needle), in the context of positions used in preclinical training exercises and assumed by practitioners performing dental procedures. The 101 subjects tended to choose an obtuse angle (mean of 125 degrees) and to vary this angle only slightly in repeated trials. (DB)
