Abstract

L. Burmester Theory has been suggested as a means of explaining the relative motion of the femur and tibia. E. S. Grood, et al. , raised significant doubt about the ability of Burmester Theory to explain the complex interaction among these ligaments and the tibia and femur. This paper explores an expansion of Burmester Theory to include ligament strain, varying ligament fiber attachments, and, finally, out of plane 3-D motions.
