Abstract/Artist Statement

The supporting muscles of the shoulder, also known as the rotator cuff, can be difficult to identify, let alone target and strengthen. The Shoulder Strengthening Device is an attempt to provide overhead throwing athletes and physically active patrons with an efficient way to warm up and strengthen the rotator cuff. The device was designed to be portable, lightweight, and versatile in its application. A series of supplemental exercises were developed to maximize the effectiveness of the device. Preliminary testing displays concrete evidence of muscle stimulation and suggested evidence of enhanced muscle performance and injury prevention.
