The paper discusses the three-dimensional screw axis surface representation of human knee joint motion. Some important concepts in this screw axis surface representation are: 1) that the infinitesimal as well as the finite motion analysis be perfromed, and 2) that the methodology employed in constructing these surfaces be sufficiently accurate to insure the generation of a recognizable pattern amongst like knee conditions. Once finished, the strength of this representation of knee motion data lies in its usefulness both to clinicians, because of its characteristic visual patterns, and to engineers, because of its wealth of quantitative information.
