Through the development of a light-weight instrumented violin bow, and its integration to an upper limb, finger and bow biomechanical model, upper limb loads during bowings task were quantified without altering bowing arm kinematics. This thesis contributed to, and improved upon, foundation knowledge surrounding the motion and loads experienced during a violin bow cycle, and how these variables are affected when performing on different violin strings during seated and standing bowing.
