Abstract: A simple method to evaluate force and moments of knee joint during isometric extension has been developed and provides to the physicians a fast and objective tool for the evaluation of patients before and after a surgery or rehabilitative program. The experiment was made on normal young patients. Graphs of angle-moment were obtained. The patients started from 90° of knee flexion and extended step-by-step the knee joint until the maximum knee extension was achieved. Force, angle and moment were measured at each step. In comparison with literature, even if significant differences of technical instrumentation, age and activity of the patients are present, the maximum moment-angle behaviour during extension is the same but different magnitude. Future development of this device is to make it easy to use directly in clinical applications.
