Supplementary Material

Description of video 1: This was a y-axial view. After the virtual force along the z axis directing to the X-Y plane was applied to the femur model, the femur was placed on the coronal (X-Y) plane. This application could ensure that the posterior aspects of the medial and lateral femoral condyles and the greater trochanter contacted the X-Y plane.

Description of video 2: This was a z-axial view. After the previous step in video 1, the virtual force along the Y axis directing to the X-Z plane was applied to the femur model. This application could ensure that the distal aspects of the medial and lateral femoral condyles contacted the X-Z plane.
