Project descriptionMid-knee flexion instability is a common consequence observed following rupture to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). Following injury, there is subsequent reorganisation of the Central Nervous System (CNS). Prevalence of ACL lesion is most common among the athletic population with current clinical tests unable to reduce time taken to return to sport (RTS). Matching knee force output to a visual feedback provides the link to the CNS that allows measurement of neuromuscular control. Project aim: to build a device capable of measuring neuromuscular control of the knee in the mid-flexion joint range where instability is observed.
