    • pronation
    • ulnar dev
  3. when is it wrist flex vs ext?
    • flexion in add
    • extension in abd
  4. when does scap go where?
    • post elev: flex/abd
    • post dep: ext/abd
    • ant elev: flex/add
    • ant dep: ext/add
  5. flex/abd hand pos (for all 3)
    • proximal: using same hand as pt's exercising hand, grab near biceps
    • distal: lumbrical grip on dorsum, fingers on radial side, thumb on ulnar side
  6. ext/add hand pos 
    straight arm and w elbow ext
    w elbow flex
    • prox: hand opp. to pt's exercising arm, grab medial arm
    • distal: split finger grip around thumb

    • prox: same as pt's exercising arm, lumbrical grip on sup medial arm
    • distal: split grip around thumb
    • (piano hands?)

    • prox: same as pt's exercising arm, go under the arm and use lumbrical grip around med epicondyle
    • distal: walk on beach hand

    • flex/add 
    • for ext/abd start with hips perpendic to diag, then turn to face it
  9. ext abd hand pos
    • prox: "cradle the baby", hand opp to pt's exercising arm, 
    • distal: lumbrical grip on dorsum, with 4 and 5 on ulnar side
