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 ...
Conceptual Design for a Surface-Guided Total Knee Replacement With Normal Kinematics
The objective of this thesis was to develop a concept and methodologies for designing a total knee replacement (TKR) with normal kinematics and a high range of motion. The design philosophy was that a TKR can function ...
Methods for Improving Ability to Investigate the Effectiveness of Non-Invasive Treatment Strategies for Medial Knee OA
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis, occurring frequently in the medial compartment of the knee. As the onset and progression of medial knee OA has been associated with abnormal and excessive loading ...
