plane of scapula


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia.

plane of scapula

The angle of the scapula in its resting position, normally 30° to 45° forward from the frontal plane toward the sagittal plane. Movement of the humerus in this plane is less restricted than in the frontal or sagittal planes because the capsule is not twisted.
