- Primary lever should be positioned back with lever handle
resting forward on elbow pad. Lift lever handle and sit on seat
with arm pads and lever to side. Place elbow in elbow pads at
shoulder height and grip handle with over hand grip so forearm
is orientated upward and back. With opposite hand, grasp seat
handle if available, for added stability.
- Pull lever handle forward and downward as far as possible
by rotating upper arm. Allow lever to return to original position.
Repeat. Continue with opposite arm.
- Turn seat
facing inward at 45° if external rotation ROM of shoulder
is limited. Consequently placing the upper arm in this plane
limits internal rotation ROM of shoulder and Supraspinatus
will assist slightly in interal rotation.
