The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of anterior portion of anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, anterior and deep portions of medial collateral ligament and the tibio-femoral articular contacts on passive knee motion. A well-accepted reference model for a normal tibio-femoral joint is reconstructed from the literature. The proposed three-dimensional dynamic tibio-femoral model includes the isometric fascicles, ligament bundles and irregularly shaped medial… CONTINUE READING
