The loads acting in human joints were measured at the Charité in Berlin directly in patients by using instrumented implants. Additionally to the joint contact forces kinematic and kinetic data were synchronously captured in patients with instrumented knee and hip implants at the motion analysis lab of the Julius Wolff Institute and the Humboldt University of Berlin. For the analysis of various biomechanical issues comprehensive data sets were prepared.
The comprehensive data sets contain the following information:
- joint contact forces and moments
- whole body kinematics (marker trajectories)
- ground reaction forces
Sample data sets are now released for free download which consist of 1 walking trial from one total knee and one total hip replacement subject.
