Tensor Fasciae Latae Muscle

The tensor fasciae latae is a tensor of the fascia lata; continuing its action, the oblique direction of its fibers enables it to stabilizes the knee in extension (assists Gluteus Maximus during knee extension). In the erect posture, acting from below, it will serve to steady the pelvis upon the head of the femur; and by means of the iliotibial band it steadies the condyles of the femur on the articular surfaces of the tibia, and assists the Glutaeus maximus in supporting the knee in a position of extension.
