The shoulder girdle has a complex motion. Many researchers have taken interest in the complex motions of the shoulder and investigated it by various methodologies. We have recently been able to evaluate 3D kinematics of the shoulder with the aid of 3D motion analysis systems such as 3D motion capture system, 3D MRI, and 2D/3D registration technique. In this chapter, we summarize the advantage and disadvantage of each 3D motion analysis system and introduce the results of the shoulder kinematics previously reported.
