How to Build a Better Knee


Whoever described the human body as a marvel of engineering was clearly not talking about the knee. Design-wise, it’s deeply flawed: To function properly, more than a dozen tendons, ligaments, and bones must work in concert. Despite this complexity, the knee rotates in only two directions, forward and backward — great for when our forebears sprinted across African savannas, but not so hot when we pivot and swerve, or whatever it is you’re doing every time you ski or play basketball. What’s more, the joint wears out faster than the rest of the body, all but guaranteeing injury down the line.
