Kinematics of the Knee Joint in Action

The knee is an outstanding musculoskeletal structure that provides strength and flexibility to enable balance and movement, and an understanding of each individual’s joint motion seems to be the key to implant selection and true kinematic alignment in total knee arthroplasty. However, accurate assessment of its movement patterns is challenging: Not only does soft tissue artefact complicate assessment of the underlying skeletal kinematics, but tracking the joint throughout both loaded and unloaded phases of functional movements is extremely difficult.

William (Bill) Taylor is Professor of Movement Biomechanics at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Through developing medical engineering concepts for evaluating joint stability and stiffness, as well as accurate and robust techniques for assessing motion patterns, his goal is to identify movement pathologies at an early time point, hence allowing therapies to be targeted at the specific individual. In this talk, he will present the group’s tracking dual-plane fluoroscope, which has the potential to revolutionize the assessment of knee pathologies by providing accurate and dynamic access to skeletal movement patterns.
