Hyperextension of these joints allows the body weight line to pass anterior to the center of the knee (and posterior to the hip) joint axis. In this position the joints are locked by two opposing forces: the body weight vector on one side of the joint and ligamentous tension on the other. At the ankle there is no similar source of passive stability. The ankle and subtalar joints each have a significant range of motion beyond neutral in both directions. Also, the ankle joint is not located at the middle of the foot.
