Mechanisms of the knee joint have always been of interest to orthopaedic surgeons, prosthesis designers and biomechanical engineers. Meniscal injuries are common and the impact of such injuries on the patients is tremendous. Therefore, it is of great interest to investigate the load transmission mechanism in the knee and especially in the menisci.
