Although the anterior drawer test at the ankle joint is commonly used in routine clinical practice, very little is known about the sharing of load between the individual passive structures and the joint response at different flexion angles.A mathematical model of the ankle joint was devised to calculate ligament fibre recruitment and load/displacement(More)
The anterior drawer test at the human ankle joint is a routine clinical examination. The relationship between the mechanical response of this joint and the flexion angle was elucidated by a recent mathematical model, using purely elastic mechanical characteristics for the ligament fibres. The objective of the present work was to assess the effect of(More)
Previous studies suggest that osteoarthritis (OA) is related to abnormal or excessive articular contact stress. The peak pressure resulting from an applied load is determined by many factors, among which is shape and relative position and orientation of the articulating surfaces or, referring to a more common nomenclature, joint congruence. It has been(More)
