Design and validation of an unconstrained loading system to measure the envelope of motion in the rabbit knee joint.

Abstract

An unconstrained loading system was developed to measure the passive envelope of joint motion in an animal model commonly used to study ligament healing and joint arthritis. The design of the five-degree-of-freedom system allowed for unconstrained knee joint loading throughout flexion with repeated removal and reapplication of the device to a specimen… (More)
