Squating puts pressure on the knees, if the knees are problematic then better to stay away from excercises that will strain them more.

Modified squats or leg presses with less than 60 degrees of flexing may benefit your knees. This will help strengthen the supporting muscles as well as the hip abductor muscles of your "core ". Avoid deep squats and leg extensions on machine. Tai chi is excellent for strengthening and balance. Very gentle on arthritic joints.
