Abstract

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury of the knee is common in sports. A serious ACL injury leads to ligament reconstruction surgery. In order to evaluate result of surgery or optimize the rehabilitation process, a knee condition must be objectively identified. The purpose of this study is, therefore, to numerically indicate and classify knee condition of patients via the chaos analysis. Lyapunov exponents (LyEs) were used for the comparison of the normal and the patients.
