How do you rupture an ACL? The forces acting on knee tissue during movement

The knee sustains tremendous forces during movement making it susceptible to injury and disease such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture and osteoarthritis. Greater understanding of how these forces impact knee tissues during everyday tasks and explosive athletic motion would benefit the prevention and treatment of knee impairments. This presentation will look at methods combining gait analysis, medical imaging, and computational simulation to predict knee loading during movement and examine the implications to injury and disease mechanisms. Part of the Saturday Morning Science Series
