Shoulder joint biomechanics can be investigated using cadaveric testing setups. A novel system is described which uses a computer and graphical user interface to both control electronic actuators and record data from sensors. The algorithm of the custom software, programmed in the LabVIEW G language, is described. A desktop computer running the custom software and through National Instruments I/O hardware gives users full control over dynamic and static actuation and also collects, compiles, and records all data streams from disparate sensing modalities. Data gathered from a run to validate the system is also presented.
