Standard Loads Knee Joint
Here you can download additional data belonging to the Publication:
G. Bergmann, A. Bender, F. Graichen, J. Dymke, A. Rohlmann, A. Trepczynski, M. O. Heller, I. Kutzner: “Standardized Loads Acting in Knee Implants.” PLoS ONE 2014 9(1): e86035. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0086035
In this publication the knee contact forces and moments during 8 different activities were averaged from 8 subjects (no data included from subject K4R). The numerical data can be used as a basis for improved test standards for knee implants, but also serve as input for finite element models of the knee and for many other biomechanical and clinical purposes.
You are permitted to use all data and diagrams for non-commercial purposes if you reference the PlosOne article AND the OrthoLoad database.
Data are available for 3 different load levels. For most applications the HIGH100 loads should be chosen.
AVER75 = average loads in subjects with 75kg body weight
HIGH100 = high loads for 100kg BW
PEAK100 = peak loads for 100kg BW
Separate data for the different activities are available, but also zipped for all activities together
