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 and optimally designed artificial knees could be created for high flexion a...
