Abstract

The purpose of this study was to establish a kinetic model to examine the kinetical interactions between segments of upper limb during overhand throwing. A model of threesegment kinetic chain consisting of upper arm, forearm and distal segment was established for kinetic calculation. Using Kane method to get resultant muscular moment. The conclusions can be drawn that the Kane method is effective in describing the upper himb movement and calculating the joint torque. Upper limb movement in Baseball pitching was study by this model and find out some relationships between motion technique and kinetic data.
