Repeated movements of upper extremities cause to overuse injuries however, it is really challenging to determine which of them do so. Primary aim of the project is to determine the effect of different shoulder positions on gripping capability of hand and electro physiologic activity of upper extremity muscles. 23 case report data which have ages ranging between 18 and 30 are analyzed. According to our results, as the shoulder flexion increases, muscular activity and depending on this the muscular exhaustion also increases whereas the functional quality of hand decreases. The case is both a risk factor for an occupational disease and a situation that decreases skillful functioning of hands. For the next researches, advantages of exhaustion reducing apparatus and ergonomic systems, which can be used during works requiring over shoulder movements, are EMG results.
