Gerber test
The person being examined is in a standing position, places the dorsum of the hand against the mid-lumbar spine and then lifts the hand away from the back. Inability to carry out this movement indicates a lesion of the subscapularis muscle whilst abnormal motion in the scapula during the test may indicate scapular instability.
