We examined the relationship between activity, peak load, medial to lateral load distribution, and flexion angle at peak load for activities of daily living. An instrumented knee prosthesis was used to measure knee joint force simultaneously with motion capture during walking, chair sit to stand and stand to sit, stair ascending and descending, squatting from a standing position, and golf swings. The maximum total compressive load at the knee was highest during stair ascending and descending… CONTINUE READING
