Deflection angle or valgus-malrotation of the tibia head before and after the failure for groups I, II, III and VI. The failure type 1 was observed in the case of the specimen iBalance 6 after the collapse of the opposite cortex. LS “n” means the failure occurred at load step “n”. The values of the first 3 groups were retrieved from our previous studies. Same values were considered before and after the failure for the Activmotion group
