(From genu, the knee, and flecto, to bend). Kneeling. In kneeling, the ossa pubis are lower than when we stand; and this not only increases the hollow of the loins, and throws the belly and its viscera more forward, but in some measure strains the abdominal muscles; occasioning syncope from the uneasiness. This depression of the os pubis in kneeling depends partly on the tension of the musculi recti ante-riores, the lower tendons of which are, in this situation, drawn with violence under the condyloid pulley of the os femoris.
