Comprehensive data samples

Comprehensive data samples, including synchronous joint kinetics and whole body kinematics are now available for free download. 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.


Ground Reaction Forces available

Additionally data samples of the synchronous measured Ground Reaction Forces during walking, published in “Comparison of in vivo measured loads in knee, hip and spinal implants during level walking“, are now available at the database (Additional Data – *grf2f.eof). Take a look here for further information!

Loading of the Hip Joint.

Publication and additional data, (May 2016)

Typical average and high loads from 10 subjects during most demanding and frequent activities of daily living were defined. This publication is hoped to become a standard reference for most investigations about the hip joint. See the next two topic!
