The hypothesis which motivated the work reported in this article was that neglecting pure moments developed between the foot and pedal during cycling leads to a substantial error in computing axial and varus/valgus moments at the knee. To test this hypothesis, a mathematical procedure was developed for computing the three-dimensional knee loads using three-dimensional pedal forces and moments. In addition to data from a six-load-component pedal dynamometer, the model used pedal position and… CONTINUE READING
