They implanted a differential variable reluctance transducer to the AM bundle of the ACL of 11 subjects. ACL strains were measured in vivo when a subject's leg was attached to a knee loading fixture that allowed independent application of anteriorposterior shear force, valgus-varus moments, and internalexternal rotation moments to the tibia and simulation of weight-bearing conditions. The anterior shear force was applied on the proximal end of the tibia from 0N to 130N in 10-N increments. The valgus-varus moments were applied to the knee from À10 Nm to 10 Nm in 1-Nm increments.

Further clarification is needed through additional research efforts. 01) in the ACL incidence rate among immediate family members of the 31 ACL-injured patients compared with the controls. 33).
