The Kinetic Medial Rotation Test (KMRT)
The Kinetic Medial Rotation Test (KMRT) has been part of the Kinetic Control test battery since our first course in 1995. This cognitive movement control test is designed to identify uncontrolled movement (UCM) at both the scapula and gleno-humeral joint (GHJ) (Comerford & Mottram, 2012). It is a popular test with clinicians as it signposts the presence of UCM at the scapular and/or GHJ and therefore directs targeted interventions.
