The physiological ratio of compression to anterior-posterior (A-P) knee joint loads has substantial effects on the loading of soft tissue structures, patellofemoral loads, and knee kinematics [1, 2]. There is also a direct relationship between resultant kinematics and joint forces. D’lima et al. was also able to compute A-P kinematics at a given flexion angle with minimal error using measured A-P and compressive load acquired from the instrumented tibia . The direction of A-P load measured at the tibia is associated with the direction of translations of the femur relative to the tibia.
