Deep knee flexion is required for many activities of daily living during work, exercise, religious worship, and hobbies. Walker et al. [1] found that activities such as rising from a low chair or getting into or out of bath require between 100° and 160° of knee flexion. Other activities such as kneeling or squatting to pick an item off the ground can be difficult with a limited range of motion. Beside deep knee flexion being important for daily living activities, it is essential in non-Western cultures that commonly sit in deep knee-bending positions.
