  • In vivo load measurements in TKR at CharitÚ,Berlin

    Dear Biomech-L list members

    On March 14, 2007 the first instrumented tibial tray developed by the
    Biomechanics Laboratory of the CharitÚ-Universitńtsmedizin Berlin, Campus
    Benjamin Franklin, Berlin, Germany (Head: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Georg Bergmann) was
    implanted successfully in a 63 years old male patient.

    First in vivo measurements were taken one week postoperatively during
    physiotherapy, level walking and stair climbing.

    Results of this research will help to improve knee surgery and
    implant designs. Additionally they will further advance physiotherapy
    and rehabilitation of knee patients. Implantations of up to ten
    instrumented knee endoprostheses are planned.

    For more information and to see the first results, please go to

    Regards,
    Bernd
