Abstract

The Internal-External (I/E) arms throughout the I/E range of motion were defined to understand the 3-D balance at the knee. Moment arms for six muscles crossing the knee joint during I/E rotation were measured at six different flexion angles (Full extension, 30, 50, 70, 90 degrees and full flexion). The results were confirmed by a statistical software.
