CAD and animation systems offer a variety of techniques for designing and animating arbitrary movements of rigid bodies. Such tools are essential for planning, analyzing, and demonstrating assembly and disassembly procedures of manufactured products. In this paper, we advocate the use of screw motions for such applications, because of their simplicity,(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare knee kinematics during stair walking in patients with simultaneous total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and unicompartmental knee arthroplasties (UKA). It was hypothesized that UKA would reproduce more normalized knee kinematics than TKA during stair ascent and descent. Six patients who received UKA in one knee and TKA in(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to investigate and analyze bilateral incidence and morphology of complete discoid lateral meniscus (DLM) with possible relation to tears and symptoms in knee joints. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-eight consecutive patients with symptomatic or already-torn complete DLM on magnetic resonance imaging in a unilateral knee(More)
The swept volume of a moving solid is a powerful computational and visualization concept. It provides an excellent aid for path and accessibility planning in robotics and for simulating various manufacturing operations. It has proven difficult to evaluate the boundary of the volume swept by a solid bounded by trimmed parametric surfaces undergoing an(More)
