A Randomised Study of Knee alignment strategies for Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

Total knee replacements are usually aligned according to the mechanical axis of the lower limb. However, not all replacements are successful, potentially in part due toe alignment of the joint replacement. This project examines whether patient-specific kinematic alignment leads to better results for patients than mechanical alingment. This trial will compare the effect of using a predictive algorithm to guide patient-specific selection of alignment approaches for mechanical and kinematic alignment. A key outcome measure for research relates to the walking patterns of individuals before and after surgery. These tests will be undertaken in the Applied Biomechanics Lab at UC
