The effects of mechanical loads on the knee joint during deep flexion were investigated. Four activities that include two different kinds of kneeling position were analyzed. The maximum flexion angle of the knee during double rise, double descend, single rise and single descend were 151.9±3.7, 151.7±3.6, 130±5.9 and 126.2±5.1 degrees, respectively.
