Functional Biomechanical Evaluation of Bioinductive Augmentation for High Risk Rotator Cuff Tears

The rotator cuff muscle group is a strong contributor to the healthy function of the shoulder. However, tearing in this muscle group is common, leading to pain and difficulty performing activities of daily living. Though surgical repair can reduce pain and improve function, muscle re-tears are common after surgical intervention. A novel biotechnology, Regeneten, being employed by Dr Ivan Wong, may improve rotator cuff surgical success by increasing tissue healing and strength post-operatively. The primary objective of this project is to compare shoulder function of patients undergoing this novel treatment and traditional surgical treatment, to those without rotator cuff injury. Muscle activity and upper body motion will be analyzed while participants perform standard upper extremity activities of daily living. TO BE CONT”D
