This report, first, presents a brief introduction dealing with kinematics measured by means of sonic emitters and a special application of this technique to the shoulder complex. This is followed by a presentation of a new data collection methodology and analysis of the sonic emitters data by utilization of the three most accurate sonic emitters out of six located on the arm cuff of the test subject. Numerical results are provided for three male subjects in the form of plots showing passive resistance of the shoulder complex as functions of drawer displacements of the upper arm for its several orientations with respect to the torso.
