Development of total knee arthroplasty
with normal knee function

At present, patients’ satisfaction after total knee arthroplasty is not high because of limited function during ADL activities. In Asia and the Middle East, the deep knee bending motion is necessary due to people’s lifestyles. Our mission is to develop total knee arthroplasty with normal knee function using our large database on knee kinematics from normal individuals, patients with pathogenic conditions, and post-surgical patients. We have established an accurate in vivo 3-dimensional kinematic analysis method. Kinematic analysis using our system in vivo enables physicians, surgeons, and researchers to assess problems related to current total knee arthroplasty implant designs, operative techniques, etc. Detailed analyses of these data might elucidate important issues and be useful for the development of total knee arthroplasty with normal knee function.
