  • Summary of knee joint forces

    Dear friends,

    I thank all those have answered to my question about knee
    joint forces.
    I am sorry for the delay with which I thank you (your answer message
    dates back to middle February), but in the meanwhile I gave birth to a
    child and I have read your message just now.
    These are the references suggested to me:

    by patients who have a deficient anterior cruciate ligament", Journal
    of Bone and Joint Surgery, 72A, 871-877, 1990

    intrinsic knee mechanics and the knee extensor mechanism", Journal of
    Orthopaedic Research, 5, 539-547, 1987
