Standard Loads Hip Joint

Downloads: PUBLICATION | DATA COLLECTION | VIDEO Many biomechanical studies on hip joints and their replacements require detailed knowledge of the loads acting in this joint. These loads widely depend on the performed activity, but additionally vary from one subject to the other. Because the whole possible load spectrum cannot be applied in such studies, a collection of typical loads was compiled. They are based on in vivo measurements in ten active subjects with instrumented hip implants during nine demanding and frequent activities of daily living. Two data sets define (I) average contact forces and frictional moments in subjects with … Continue reading Standard Loads Hip Joint
