Figures

Grahic Jump Location
Fig. 1

Schematic of the 'Desktop Knee Machine' for applying combinations of compressive, shear and torque forces across the knee at a range of flexion angles with respect to tibial and femoral axes. The components were constrained (C), unconstrained (U), or set (S) at the required angle (tibial slope or femoral flexion).

Grahic Jump Location
Fig. 2

For each knee, the central diagram shows the contacts at all flexion angles for compression load only; the surrounding 4 diagrams show contacts for anterior femoral shear, posterior shear, internal torque, and external torque, as indicated by arrows. M indicates the Medial side of the knee as shown from a top view.

Grahic Jump Location
Fig. 3

AP laxity curves for four PS designs. Medial and lateral condyles are graphed together to show differences in constraint from one compartment to the other.

Grahic Jump Location
Fig. 4

Rotational laxity data for four PS designs. Positive sense of rotation is defined as counter clockwise about the tibia when viewed from top view of the tibia.
