This study compared peak torque and torque steadiness during isometric abduction in subjects with subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS) and those with no upper limb disorders. The SIS group consisted of 27 subjects (33.48 +/- 9.94 years) with unilateral SIS. The control group consisted of 23 healthy and active subjects (32.26 +/- 9.04 years). Peak torque and torque steadiness were measured during isometric abduction (80 masculine in the scapular plane) of the shoulder. Standard deviation, coefficient of variation, stability time, median frequency, and relative power were measured from the steadiness trials. There were neither significant interactions between group and side (P > 0.05), nor were there significant main effects of group and side (P > 0.05) for all variables analyzed. The results of this study showed that steadiness is preserved by SIS during isometric abduction of the shoulder.
