The detection and recording of vibration emission from human joints, a technique which we have termed "vibration arthrography", is a sensitive, non-invasive method for the objective study of the locomotor system. Using vibration sensors attached to bony prominences around the knee, we studied the joints of both normal and symptomatic subjects. Normal subjects produced three signal types--physiological patellofemoral crepitus, patellar clicks, and the lateral band signal. In symptomatic subjects… Expand
Vibration arthrometry in assessment of knee disorders: the problem of angular velocity.
TLDR
It has been found that varying the investigative procedure can affect the magnitude of some parameters of the vibration signal, and the effect of speed of joint movement has been quantified in a pilot study involving 24 patients with internal knee damage. Expand

Vibration arthrometry in the patients with failed total knee replacement
TLDR
Vibration signals in rapid knee motion can be used for effectively detecting polyethylene wear of the patellar component in the early stage, while PPC signals can only be used to detect prosthetic metal wear in the late stage. Expand
