Study of micromotion in modular acetabular components during gait and subluxation: a finite element investigation.
Polyethylene wear after total hip arthroplasty may occur as a result of normal gait and as a result of subluxation and relocation with impact. Relocation of a subluxed hip may impart a moment to theExpand

Optimisation of the posterior stabilised tibial post for greater femoral rollback after total knee arthroplasty—a finite element analysis
Femoral rollback after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is necessary for flexion beyond 90–100°. Femoral rollback in posterior cruciate substituting TKA occurs as a result of the interaction between theExpand

Optimization of the contact damping and stiffness coefficients to minimize human body vibration.
In this paper, a lumped mass human model is used to minimize the energy absorption at the feet/hip level when the body is subjected to vertical vibration. The contact forces are assumed unknown. ByExpand

Importance of proximal A2 and A4 pulleys to maintaining kinematics in the hand: a biomechanical study
PurposeThe A2 and A4 pulleys have been shown to be important in finger flexor tendon function. Other authors have suggested either reconstruction or venting of portions of these pulleys in an attemptExpand

No effect of femoral offset on bone implant micromotion in an experimental model.
BACKGROUND In total hip replacement (THR), the femoral offset (FO) is assessed preoperatively, and the surgeon must determine whether to restore, increase, or decrease the FO based on experience andExpand
