Twenty-three knees were sectioned, digitized, and standardized to determine the 'average' three-dimensional bony geometry and ligamentous attachments. Data on normal knee motion were obtained from a cadaveric study. An algorithm was written to simulate three-dimensional patella motion. Verification of the knee model was achieved by determining femoro-tibial and patello-femoral contact locations, as well as ligament length patterns, and comparing the results with published data. The criterion… CONTINUE READING
