The moment arm (MA) of the knee extensor mechanism has been reported by a number of researchers, although it has been defined and measured differently in these studies. The aims of this study were: (1) to quantify the MA of the knee-extensor mechanism, which is represented by the MA of the patellar tendon at the knee; and (2) to show that the MA of the patellar tendon is related to the size of the distal femur.
