The article presents a study on building and validating an integrated experimental model for kinematics of the knee. The study made use of computed tomography scanning, optical motion analysis, surgical navigation, and through a mechanical knee rig. Thirteen cadavers are used for testing in which one is for pilot experiment while the remaining are used for subsequent measurements. The methodology used has allowed accurate measurement of the femur, tibia, and patella position for knee kinematics.
