Constraint and semi-constraint knee
« on: January 12, 2004, 09:59:50 AM »
I have a question on the structure of the prosthesis and I wonder if someone can help out.
I heard that there is constraint and semi-constraint knee. May I know if fully constraint knee means hinge joint? Is the PCL retaining knee non-constraint or semi-constraint? Is the posterior stabilised knee a semi-constraint knee?
