Joint kinematics and contact mechanics dictate the success of current total knee replacement (TKR) devices. Efficient computer models present an effective way of evaluating these characteristics. Predicted contact stress and area due to articulations at the tibio-femoral and patello-femoral interfaces indicate potential clinical performance. Previous finite element (FE) knee models have generally been used to predict contact stresses and/or areas during static or quasi-static loading conditions… CONTINUE READING
