BACKGROUND Compared to the design of a traditional multi-axis total knee arthroplasty, the single-axis arthroplasty studied has a fixed flexion/extension center of rotation in the femoral component. The influence of this characteristic on functional daily activity, i.e., stand-to-sit, is not well understood. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of different arthroplasty designs on knee kinematic and lower limb muscular activation for the stand-to-sit movement. METHODS… CONTINUE READING
