In brief: Terminal extension

The last 30-40 degrees of extension strengthening are the safest on the knee.
Leg presses, squats, knee extension exercises that focus on the last 30-40 degrees of motion can create good strength and mass without stressing the knee cap or meniscus significantly. Lunges put high stresses on the knee.
