Title:
A new model to predict in vivo human knee kinematics under physiological-like muscle activation 
Abstract:
Although a number of approaches have attempted to model knee kinematics, rarely have they been validated against in vivo data in a larger subject cohort. Here, we assess the feasibility of four-bar linkage mechanisms in addressing knee kinematics and propose a new approach that is capable of accounting for lengthening characteristics of the ligaments, including possible laxity, as well as the internal/external rotation of the joint. MR scans of the knee joints of 12 healthy volunteers were taken...    »
