Amis AA, Miller JH, Dowson D, et al., 1981, Biomechanical aspects of the elbow: Joint forces related to prosthesis design, Engineering in Medicine, Vol: 10, Pages: 65-68, ISSN: 0046-2039
This paper has neglected subjects such as the movements allowed by the articulation at the elbow, or description of the joint itself, which could explain many other aspects of the biomechanical function of this joint. It was felt, however, that at this juncture it was important to concentrate on describing the large forces which the elbow must withstand, and the manner in which it acts. This is the key to successful mechanical design of an elbow joint replacement.

Amis AA, Dowson D, Wright V, 1979, Muscle strengths and musculo-skeletal geometry of the upper limb, Engineering in Medicine, Vol: 8, Pages: 41-48, ISSN: 0046-2039
A survey of past literature has shown that there is a lack of reliable data for use in prediction of joint forces in the upper limb although this is desirable when developing joint replacements. Upper limb geometry has been analysed, leading to muscle moment arm data at the wrist and elbow. The variation of these moment arms during elbow flexion has also been examined. Analysis of the dimensions of muscles has enabled their relative strengths to be predicted, based on their 'physiological cross-sections'. When used in conjunction with published emg data, this information will enable elbow and wrist joint forces to be estimated more realistically than has previously been possible.
Ellis MI, Seedhom BB, Amis AA, 1979, Forces in the knee joint whilst rising from normal and motorized chairs, Engineering in Medicine, Vol: 8, Pages: 33-40, ISSN: 0046-2039
Knee joint forces were determined by kinesiological techniques using a high speed camera and force platforms so that a comparison could be made for rising from a normal chair without the aid of arms and with the aid of a motorized chair. For rising from a normal chair, the knee joint forces parallel to the long axis of the tibia at the point of contact between the tibia and femur, were found to be up to seven times body weight at about the time when the body left contact with the chair. Using a motorized chair the knee joint forces were reduced to less than body weight until normal standing was achieved.
Amis AA, Dowson D, Unsworth A, 1977, An examination of the elbow articulation with particular reference to variation of the carrying angle, Engineering in Medicine, Vol: 6, Pages: 76-80, ISSN: 0046-2039
Radiology showed that the articular surfaces were of constant shape, and that male elbows were significantly larger than those of females. A goniometer was devised, to measure lateral forearm movements during flexion. This was rigidly mounted on the humerus, using an articular template to ensure that its axis was coincident with that of the elbow. Results showed that the collateral ligaments allowed the forearm approximately nine degrees of lateral movement. The average locus of forearm movement closely followed a sinusoidal variation. This corresponded to a fixed flexion axis which bisected the obtuse angle between the axis of humerus and forearm, with the forearm fully extended. It was concluded that for an elbow prosthesis, an anatomical shape could be used and that a fixed flexion axis would reproduce natural motion.
