Knowledge of in-vivo articular cartilage contact deformation is critical for understanding normal cartilage function and the etiology of osteoarthritis (2,8). This knowledge is also instrumental for design of ex-vivo experiment to investigate the chondrocyte mechanotransductions under physiological loading conditions (7). Further, in-vivo cartilage contact data is necessary for validation of 3D computational models used to predict biomechanical responses of the articular joints (1,5). However, due to the complexity of in-vivo joint loading conditions as well as the complicated joint geometry, little information is available on in-vivo cartilage deformation in literature (9). In-vivo cartilage deformation as a function of loading history has not been delineated.
