Many researchers have studied the tibial passive motion, the boundaries of which are defined by various knee ligamentious and bony constraints [1, 2, 3]. The technique has been used in clinical practices and experimental research to assess injury and predict likely surgical outcomes [1, 2]. After total knee replacement surgery (TKR), the implants’ design features and altered ligamentious tension provide the joint constraint and stability. Therefore, the change in passive envelope of motion from the natural condition could be used to observe the altered constraints and stability achieved in TKR knees. The objective of this study was to assess the change in passive envelope of motion after TKR with two implant designs: cruciate retaining and posterior stabilized.
