This study measured the patellar lateral force-displacement behaviour at a range of knee flexion angles in normal human cadaver specimens. The knee extensor muscles were loaded in proportion to their physiological cross-sectional areas, the tensions being applied in physiological directions along the separate quadriceps muscles. Knee extension was blocked(More)
Patellofemoral joint stability is a result of the restraining effects of the quadriceps muscles, the retinacular structures, and engagement of the bones. The role and significance of these mechanisms in restraining patellar lateral displacement was investigated in this study by measuring the force needed to cause 5 mm lateral displacement (i.e. the(More)
