In-vitro validation of a device measuring the tibio-femoral contact forces and moments for efficient assistance during ligament balancing in total knee arthroplasty

Ligament balancing in total knee arthroplasty is believed to have an important influence on the joint stability and prosthesis lifetime. In order to provide quantitative information and assistance during the ligament balancing phase, a device that intraoperatively measures knee joint forces and moments has been developed.
