The knee is the largest joint in the body. It is built for weight bearing, stability and mobility. The knee complex is composed of four bones and three osseous bone-to-bone joints. These are the patellafemoral joint, tibiofemoral joint, and the tibiofibular joint.

When the knee is in its fully extended position it depends on its ligaments, meniscus, and mechanical screw home mechanism for stability. When it is in the bent position it is unstable but allows for movement in several planes.
