Rótula is the kneecap. It can also be used for any ball and socket joint. I learned this word when I needed to replace a sway arm bushing on my car. I took the old rótula to the transmission shop next door. I wasn’t needing them to change it for me, I just needed them to provide me with the vocabulary that I needed to look somewhat intelligent at the parts store.

This is not to be confused with rótulo which is a sign, such as a billboard.
