Any slight, initial net rotation was magnified as parts that were at great distances came nearer the centre.
But a more dynamic rotation has been difficult to introduce because the Big Four have put a lot of lobbying effort into defanging the regulation.
The accuracy of the azimuth determination by the developed device and the measurement method generally depends on a number of factors, in particular, on the orthogonality degree of the platform rotation axis of and the angular motion sensor sensitivity axis and rotation axis beatings, which change the slope of the angular motion sensor sensitivity axis in relation to the acceleration of gravity, which will also be seen in the appearance of a periodic signal at the sensor output in case of corresponding sensitivity to linear accelerations [14].

To achieve neutral lower limb alignment after total knee arthroplasty (TKA), the femoral and tibial components must be accurately implanted perpendicular to the femoral and tibial mechanical axes, respectively.[1],[2] Accurate radiographic evaluation of the lower limb is critical for preoperative planning of TKA, with plain radiographs, computed tomography (CT) images, and magnetic resonance images commonly available.[3] Plain radiography continues to be clinicians' preferred preoperative templating tool for TKA, but the variable measurements found with femoral rotation highlight the importance of standardizing limb positioning and rotation while obtaining these radiographs.[4],[5],[6]
