An apparatus for measuring the load-displacement and load-dependent kinematic characteristics of articulating joints-application to the human ankle joint.

Abstract

An apparatus is described which is capable of measuring the load-displacement characteristics as well as determining the loci of centers of rotation of articulating joints. The apparatus employs a floating head which permits the axis of rotation to coincide with the position of minimum joint resistance, thus eliminating non-physiological rotations at the… (More)
