A constraint-based approach to modelling the mobility of the human knee joint.

Abstract:

A model of knee mobility able to predict the range and pattern of movement in the unloaded joint was proposed by Wilson et al. (J. Biomech. 31 (1998) 1127-1136). The articular surfaces in the lateral and medial compartments and isometric fascicles in three of the knee ligaments were represented as five constraints on motion between the femur and tibia in a single degree-of-freedom parallel spatial mechanism. The path of movement of the bones during passive flexion was found by solving the for...
