In order to evaluate the contribution of the knee ligaments to restrain joint motions, knowledge about their structural properties is required. Due to the variable relative insertion orientation of the ligaments during knee motion, however, different fiber bundles are recruited, each with their specific mechanical properties. Hence, the structural properties vary as a function of knee motion. For this reason, a relationship between the structural tensile properties and the relative insertion… CONTINUE READING
