The tibio-femoral contact point in total knee replacements (TKR) is important for determining wear patterns and failure mechanisms of the polyethylene components. Furthermore, the contact point location is critical for determining muscle and ligament lever arms, leading to a more accurate prediction of the internal contact forces.
