There are no measuring devices which can measure the rotational stability after anterior cruciate ligament rupture. It is only possible to measure the sagittal stability clinically or via KT-1000, X-ray and other devices. To measure the rotational stability becomes more important because of new operation methods like the double bundle technique. This technique reconstructed the rotational stability very good. Up to now no device can measure this criterion. For this reason Fraunhofer IPA and Bort Medical developed with assistance of the clinic Markgröningen a measurement device which can measure the sagittal and transversal knee stability during the Lachman- and Pivot-Shift-Test.
