The upper extremities are held in a bilateral symmetrical position with the scapulae in mid range between protraction and re­ ACTIVITIES: POSTURES AND MOVEMENT PATTERNS 39 Figure 2-25.

Because the scapula is contacting the sup­ porting surface and is not easily accessible, it may not move with the glenohumeral joint during ROM exer­ cises, resulting in abnormal movement or impinge­ Sidelying The size of the BoS can vary depending on the place­ ment of the extremities. If the uppermost limbs are flexed and in contact with the surface, the BoS is in­ creased; if these limbs are extended the BoS is smaller (Fig. 2-17). In contrast to supine, sidelying has a smaller BoS and higher CoG.

Patients with weakness of the respiratory muscles, including pa­ tients with spinal cord injury (SCI), may find prone too difficult in the early stages of the rehabilitation process.
