The project presents a knee model, including a six degree-of-freedom patellofemoral joint, patellar stabilizers and contact surfaces for patella and femur.

License: Patellofemoral joint model

To analyze the movement of patella during knee flexion and to study deviations from the normal joint function, one can deactivate certain ligaments. The model contains the main stabilizers of the patella: medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL), medial patellotibial ligament (MPTL), lateral retinaculum (LR). The contact surface of the patella is presented as seven facets.
