What Is the Function of the Patella?


The patella functions as a guide for the quadriceps tendon in centralising the deviating input from the four muscles of the quadriceps, spreading these forces to the patellar tendon. The patella generally increases the power that the tendon can apply on the femur by increasing the angle at which it acts.
