Dear Biomch-L readers:

We are starting a project in measuring gait of patients with knee
endoprotheses (one degree of freedom). We concentrate on the
variability of the frontal knee angle to detect movements with a small ROM in
the knee due to fixation loss. We are trying to estimate the noise level of
frontal knee angle plots measured by a videometry system.

My questions are:

1. Is there any publication available dealing with frontal knee angles?

2. Do You have any suggestion which other parameter (kinetic, kinematic, EMG,
temporal, spatial, angular velocity....) might show relevant changes in this
case?

I would be grateful if you could send me any information on this topic and I
would then post a summary of the responses.
