Deep flexion activities including kneeling are desired by patients after total knee arthroplasty. This in vivo radiographic study sought to reveal the effect of tibial insert design on tibiofemoral kinematics during kneeling. One group of patients received standard posterior stabilized tibial inserts, whereas the other group received posterior stabilized tibial inserts (Flex inserts) that were designed to allow more flexion. The patients with the Flex inserts achieved greater range of motion without different tibiofemoral contact behavior.
