Part 2 of a two-part series on mobility assessment addresses the thoracic spine and upper extremities. As with part 1, Coach Louis Howe explains how to calibrate and use a smartphone for measurements. He also demonstrates how to perform six specific tests and collect objective data on them.

In the first of a two-part series, Coach Louis Howe teaches S&C coaches how to identify relevant anatomical landmarks and then use their smartphone to help perform lower extremity assessments.
