Table 3 Comparison of the knee joint force in the MRB model with the section forces in the cross section passing through the transepicondylar axis of the femur (Fig. 2-d). The forces were given in the coordinate system of Fig. 3-b. Fx, Fy, Fz were the components of the Force; Mx, My, Mz were the components of the Moment. Fres and Mres were the resulting of the force and of the moment respectively
