Movement Analysis Videos: SIMM: Knee Prosthesis

The movie below shows a simulation of a total knee prosthesis. A dynamic analysis with contact detection was performed to determine the kinematics of the knee, given the geometry of the prosthetic components. seated knee extension simulation. The quadriceps muscles are activated, and the knee is pulled into extension. The green arrow shows the contact force between the patellar and femoral components.
