  Purpose

The aim of this study is to accurately assess the relationship between knee joint kinematics and migration of the tibial component of a high congruent, rotating platform total knee prosthesis by using fluoroscopy synchronised in time and space with a force plate, an external motion registration system and Electromyography (EMG).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Migration [ Time Frame: 24 months post-operatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis is used to determine the migration of the prosthesis with respect to the bone.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • anterior-posterior translation patterns [ Time Frame: 6 months post-operatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Fluoroscopy was used to determine the anterior-posterior translation patterns of the femoral component with respect to the tibial component.

  • Axial rotation patterns [ Time Frame: 6 months post-operatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Fluoroscopy was used to determine the axial rotation patterns of both the insert and the femoral component with respect to the tibial component

  • Muscle activity [ Time Frame: 6 months post-operatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Bipolar surface EMG data of the flexor and extensor muscles is collected.

  • Shear forces [ Time Frame: 6 months post-operatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A force plate is used to measure the ground reaction forces which can be used to calculate the shear forces.
