I'm currently doing Biomechanics of the Knee Joints project. Any suggestions of what 's the best type of the knee joint structure?

In Wearable Robots: Biomechatronic Exoskeletons they describe a knee joint using a four bar linkage. It follows the motion of the knee far better than just a rotational joint (like the sort in my knee brace).

Best in the sense of a mechanical equivalent to a human knee joint.

That is to say an artificial equivalent (a simple rotational joint not that great).

"best" related to what ?

What we've evolved with is pretty efficient.
