The loads acting in human joints were measured in the Julius Wolff Institute of the Charité in Berlin directly in patients by using instrumented implants. Measurements during many routine and sportive activities were taken in hip, knee, shoulder and spinal implants. OrthoLoad supplies numerical load data and videos, which contain load-time diagrams and synchronous images of the subject’s activities.
Additional information was captured, such as kinematic data or patient’s morphology. Comprehensive data can currently only be provided for scientific partners in larger cooperative projects. Industrial partners can profit from our experience by a membership in the OrthoLoad Club.
The OrthoLoad team welcomes you and hopes that the provided data will be helpful for scientists, surgeons, physiotherapists, patients and the implant industry.
