The study deals with 3 d-Kinematics and stability patterns according to a knee joint testing machine. During flexion the lateral femoral condyle displays near extension pure rolling, near flexion pure gliding, on the medial side this ratio is vice versa. 41 knee joint specimen provided internal-external transverse rotation during there whole range of(More)
In an in vitro study we collected data relating to three-dimensional kinematics and stability patterns in 40 knee joint specimens. The specimens were tested in an apparatus: the femur was flexed on a fixed transverse axis, while a freely mobile tibial assembly allowed measurement of all passive translational and rotational movements. Translational forces,(More)
Combined instabilities of the knee are usually expressed in compartmental terms. Several clinical evaluation forms result from these classification systems. We performed an experimental study on forty fresh cadaver knees to relate abnormal femorotibial motion with the corresponding structural damage. Translational forces were introduced to the testing(More)
In an experimental study the three dimensional kinematic behaviour of fourty knee joint specimen was investigated. We found a continous passive tibial rotation during flexion, so the terminus "screw home mechanism" should no longer be used. There was also an automatic adduction and medialisation movement of the tibia. We calculated the roll-gliding ratio(More)
