Erika Meling Final KP Part I 1. List for me the muscles that are used eccentrically when the individual goes from starting position A to ending position B (Left leg only). - Quadriceps (rectus femoris, vastus medialis, vastus intermedius, vastus lateralis), hamstrings (biceps femoris, semimembranosus, semitendinosus), sartorius, gracilis, popliteus, gastrocnemius, soleus 2. What is the role of the Anterior Cruciate ligament (ACL) and the Posterior Cruciate ligament (PCL) in picture B and how do they affect rotation? - The posterior fibers of the ACL are tight in knee flexion, as well as all fibers of the PCL. Both the ACL and PCL help to control and limit the amount of rotation in the knee by stabilizing the knee. 3. Describe for me the movement of the left femur at the knee joint when the person goes from picture B to picture A. What is the process of the femur on the tibia? - As the person goes from flexion back to extension, the patella is not fixed to the ground and is able to freely move. When in full extension, the knee is most stable
