Abstract
Quantifying the kinematics of the patella is essential for understanding the role of the knee joint in locomotion, but also a challenge due to the complexity of function of the muscles and ligaments around the joint. Previous studies focusing on the human knee have postulated two different biomechanical models for the patella, the short-beam and the pulley models. However, little attention has been paid to the knee functioning in non-human primates. Based on 3D scan data of Gorilla and Cercopith...
