Hello Biomch-l subscribers,

Currently, I am looking into 3D modelling of knee joint forces
under dynamic loading situations. Specifically, I am looking at
situations which may be dangerous for a person with an ACL deficient
knee. This would include the landing of a hop test, side cutting, or
internal/external tibial rotation caused by a sudden change in
direction. I realize that there are many works available regarding
the analysis of knee forces during gait, but I have found nothing for
my application. Please reply to this message or E-Mail to :

Thanks in advance,
