    Abstract

    This paper reports on the characteristics of a sample of patients on the waiting list for total knee replacement surgery. Maximum knee flexion in sitting and standing, knee motion during functional tasks derived from electrogoniometry, and muscle strength were recorded in addition to the WOMAC and the American Knee Score questionnaires. The patients' daily physical mobility was measured using an activity monitor. Patients used less knee range of motion during functional tasks compared to age-matched controls and also took less steps during the day. Maximum flexion in standing was more strongly associated with knee motion during functional tasks than maximum flexion in sitting.
