  • Re: Models of patellofemoral joint

    I apologize to everyone for the unclear description of my models in a message
    which should have not been sent via the Biomech List Server. However, I have
    decided to include this more detailed description.

    I have developed two models in Autocad environment to analyse the patellofemoral
    joint in transverse and saggital planes.
    They are not 3-D but can be used for 3-D analysis interacting with each other.
    The transverse model is two dimensional and the saggital one can be considerd as
    two and half dimensional because it employs 3-D descriptioin for articular
    surfaces but assuming the joint to be symmetric.
    The equations are being solved graphically and numerically using Autolisp
    programming. The models communicate with each other to produce 3-D results and
    at the moment some experiments are being developed to verify these results.

    I apologize again for any inconvenience and will be glad to give further details
    to everyone interested.
