Gagey Hyperabduction Test

The Gagey Hyperabduction test is used to assess inferior glenohumeral joint laxity.

With the patient in the seated position, place one hand on the shoulder to prevent scapulothoracic rotation and raise the arm to the end range of glenohumeral abduction.

This test is designed to isolate glenohumeral abduction from scapulothoracic movement. A range of approximately 90 degrees is considered normal.

If the range of glenohumeral abduction exceeds 90 degrees or is greater than that of the opposite side, the test is considered positive and indicates laxity of the inferior glenohumeral ligament.
