Abstract

It is essential to use individually parameterized models for the knee joint as well as for the patellofemoral joint while analyzing the correlations between external and internal loads and the efficiency of specific training exercises for the lower extremities. A new approach to estimate the moving joint axis within the knee joint using motion analysis data was evaluated. The results of this single case study show that this approach might offer a possibility to parameterize an individualized knee joint model without using MRI scans.
