Abstract: The landing task involves rapid high impact loads that can lead to two common knee injuries: anterior cruciate ligament ruptures and articular cartilage lesions, which may accelerate the risk of developing secondary osteoarthritis. As these injuries can affect oneb s mobility and quality of life due to abnormal locomotion and aggravated knee pain, there is a strong need to develop preventive measures to protect the knee from these impact loads. Currently, it is unclear how the parameters that govern a landing task may lead to these knee injury mechanisms, and how these injuries may give rise to joint degeneration towards osteoarthritis. The aim of this research project is to investigate the knee biomechanics during impact landing, understand the key factors that drive the injury mechanisms and develop appropriate prevention strategies through a wide range of experimental methods, which include motion analysis, biomechanical testing, bio-imaging, biochemical assays and finite element (FE) modeling.
