STATE OF ART IN HUMAN UPPER LIMBS BIOMECHANICS AND TENNIS ELBOW
Abstract in English: 
The human elbow have been modeled and studied by different sciences to understand how its muscle fail and its soft tissue sustain damaged during tennis elbow accidents. Some researchers approached the problem mathematical modeling; using different methods such as hill-type method. Others preferred experimentation test the loading forces that can be applied to it. Other techniques such as optimization using Visual Basic have also been used in this field. Moreover, the main muscle that is involved in tennis elbow accident (Extensor Carpi Radialis Brevis) has been simulated and some parameters have discovered to be directly associated to muscle failure. The studies covered in this paper to provide a historical development of tennis elbow modeling including mechanical experiments and solutions. A brief introduction about tennis elbow, causes, and methods of treatment will be precedes the review of the literature.
