Hi

I am Manuel Gouriou from the LaTIM laboratory in Brest in France. Could
someone say me where I can find the knee joint compression axial forces on
tibial tray during normal walking? I would like to know if I can take the
ISO 14243-1 reference which is used for the tests of wear of prosthesis. But
I have not found if this standard corresponds to one person and if it is a
person weight's function. Nevertheless in the literature I have often found
2.5 times the body weight in the knee during the walking. However, what I
would like to know is the axial compression efforts on the tibial tray.

Thanks in advance for your help
