Insufficient and inadequately corroborated quantitative measures exist of in-vivo knee stability and menisciltibal plateau loads and displacements during intense dynamic activities. Our focus is to quantity knee [in]stability and in ACL-Deficient (ACLD) subjects and the role that this [in]stability plays in increasing intersegmental forces with a special emphasis on how variations in knee geometry contribute to changes in such measures.
