As I said in my previous post, I'll summarize the responses I receive
regarding my sensor (Tekscan) question. I have not received much info
yet. If you had trouble sending to me, please try again--my account
was accidently closed for a few days.

My next question: Does anyone know of a good reference for intra-articular
(tibiofemoral and patellofemoral) contact areas in the *natural* knee?
Ideally, I would like to find dynamically measured contact areas, but
statically measured contact areas would be helpful too. I've seen many
references for contact areas of implants, but not for the natural knee
(I know how difficult this is to measure!).

Thanks for your help.
