In the upright position knees bear 93% of a body weight.
In a bent position, two forces act on a Knee, the gravitational force
and the contraction force of quadriceps, for a total force equal to 4
times the body weight.
The knee cap represents the mobile fulcrum.
It is essential to have a stuck patella in conditions of maximum
reaction, in order to prevent femur and patella pathologies.
A bad posture results in improper walking which may overcharge some
parts of the knee.
Consequences of overload and instability may be:
- early articular arthrosis and early meniscal wear
- pain and movement limitation
Ergonomic posturology, thanks to the use of special “tutors”
allows us to obtain a proper walking and restore a balanced
distribution of loads. By eliminating overloads, degenerative
phenomena are interrupted, and this enables the body to regenerate
