Knee contact forces model
A musculoskeletal model that allows large knee and hip flexions to compute medial and lateral tibiofemoral contact forces (TFCF) during gait and squat tasks. The updated model includes medial and lateral knee compartment geometries that allow computing the vertical TFCF.
Knee contact forces model during tasks with a high knee and hip flexions
Apr 20, 2020

Most of musculoskeletal models (MSKM) estimate the tibiofemoral joint reaction load at a single point or do not support large lower-limb ranges. We adapted a generic MSKM that allows large knee and hip flexions to compute medial and lateral tibiofemoral contact forces (TFCF) during gait and squat tasks. The updated model includes medial and lateral knee compartment geometries that allow computing the vertical TFCF. Updated MSKM does not affect kinematics and kinetics outputs in both of the tasks, and the sum of the medial and lateral TFCF was equivalent to the net TFCF of the original MSKM.  View License
