A three-dimensional mathematical model of the ligamentous knee joint has been developed and applied to studies of the mechanical response of the knee joint. The model includes a representation of the bony portion of the knee including the proximal tibia, distal femur, soft tissue structure and the contacting surfaces of the medial and lateral condyles.
