The changes in length of electrolyte-in-rubber strain-gauge transducers implanted along the fibers of the anterior (ACL) and posterior (PCL) cruciate ligaments of the human anatomic specimen knees were measured simultaneously and continuously during knee motion. In unconstrained flexion and extension of the knee, all transducers in the ACL showed the maximum shortening peak at about 30 degrees flexion. After this, the length of the transducers in the anterior bundle increased, whereas those in… CONTINUE READING
