Shoulder Cafe


On November 2, 2021 at 16:00 CET the International Shoulder Group will host his second international on-line “shoulder café”: a series of short meetings in which some of us will present their work. These cafés are scheduled for a duration of approximately one hour, with ample time for on-line discussion.


Meeting ID: 926 1052 7989 Passcode: 487138
Join by Skype for Business

The second meeting on November 2 will be hosted by the TU Delft. The tentative program is as follows:

16:00 – Opening and Announcements by DirkJan Veeger (TU Delft)

16:05 – Florent Moissenet (Université de Geneve)
Improving orthopaedic procedures using advanced robotic testing techniques: proposition of an experimental protocol using a 7 dof robotic manipulator.

16:20 – Jacquelyn Maciukiewicz (University of Waterloo)
A novel evidence-based method of characterizing shoulder-related quality of life for breast cancer survivors.

16:35 – Erin Lee (Queen’s University)
Scapula features associated with rotator cuff tears alter glenohumeral range-of-motion in a congruence-based model.

17:05 – Navin Gurnari (VU Amsterdam)
Effectiveness of trapezius tendon transfer for restoring arm function in patients with a massive irreparable posterosuperior rotator cuff tear.

17:20 – Session End

Short biography Florent Moissenet

Florent Moissenet is a research collaborator at University of Geneva and Geneva University Hospitals. He is working on musculoskeletal modelling as well as normal and pathological movement simulations. His current research is oriented towards kinematic analysis of native, pathological and reconstructed (implants) joints of the shoulder complex. Experimental procedures on cadaveric specimens are being developed for this purpose.

Short biography Jacquelyn Maciukiewicz

Jacquelyn Maciukiewicz is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Sciences at the University of Waterloo. Her current research interests include upper limb biomechanics and clinical biomechanics, specifically with breast cancer survivors.

Short biography Erin Lee

Erin Lee is a PhD student working with Michael Rainbow in the Skeletal Observation Lab at Queen’s University. Her research is focused on the relationship between shoulder morphology and mechanical function, both in the context of ape evolution and human health. Recently, she has developed a computational glenohumeral model to examine how morphological features indicative of rotator cuff tears alter joint range-of-motion.

Short biography Navin Gurnari

Navin Gurnari completed his medical training at the Leiden University Medical Center and started his orthopaedic training in 2016 at the Vrije Universiteit (Amsterdam, NL). He is currently working at the Noordwest Ziekenhuisgroep (Alkmaar, NL). He started as a research fellow in 2019 with thesis; the Latissimus Dorsi Transfer for irreparable rotator cuff tears. This project is a collaboration of 5 centers; OLVG, Vrije Universiteit, Spaane Gasthuis, READE (Rehabilitation Center, Amsterdam, NL) and Delft University of Technology (Delft, NL).
