The purposes of this study were to: i) modify the existing 2396Hip model to simulate dynamic tasks with multiplanar hip joint motion; and ii) validate the modified model quantitatively against experimental data.

This model is based on the 2396Hip Model (Harris et al., 2017). The model was modified to increase the hip flexion capacity from 100° to 138°, hip adduction from 20° to 30°, and knee flexion from 110° to 145° (Catelli et al., 2019). Muscle wrapping surfaces were added to maintain physiological muscle paths during the increased range of motion as previously developed for the Full-body Squat Model (Catelli et al., 2019). The maximum isometric muscle forces were increased by 30% so the model could generate the joint moments for all tasks (Harrington & Burkart, 2023).
