Dear Subscribers,

Does any of you know references describing the 3D knee kinematics
and change in ligament lengths obtained from in vitro experiments, for
full range of flexion?

My aim is to introduce these kinematic results in my three dimensional
anatomical model of the human knee to optimize the ligament parameters
such as reference strains, stiffness.

The loading conditions and well-defined coordinate systems at these
experiments are needed as input to my knee model.
