Quadriceps Avoidance Characteristics of Persons with a Reconstructed Anterior Cruciate Ligament during a Forward Lunge
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears are injuries that often require surgery and physical therapy. Previous research have shown that patients after ACL reconstruction develop a compensatory mechanism called quadriceps ...
High flexion kinematics and kinetics for the improvement of artificial knee joints
Total knee arthroplasty has been effective in reducing pain, but less so in restoring function, especially for activities requiring deep knee flexion. The philosophy of this dissertation was that more functionally effective ...
