- •The ISB advises reporting shoulder orientation using an Euler YXY angle sequence.
- •Euler YXY has a humeral rotation bias and fails in non-elevated shoulder.
- •The Tilt-and-Torsion method is simpler to understand and may solve these problems.
- •We confirm that Tilt-and-Torsion angles are coherent in sports wheelchair propulsion.
- •We confirm that Tilt-and-Torsion correctly reports rotation in gimbal lock position.
