Abstract

This is a story about measurement of position sense at the elbow joint. If I cannot see my arm, where is it? The object of our studies has been to understand the changes in position sense seen after exercise and during loading of the arm. Our choice of the elbow joint is simply out of convenience. Some recent experiments using the knee joint and the quadriceps muscle have shown that the principles we have considered at the elbow joint also applies at other joints.
