The goal of the present work is to compare five modelling approaches to model the interaction between external loads and hands. The introduced modelling approaches possess various complexity and are tested for various two-handed lifting tasks. The accuracy of each approach is assessed by comparing the resulting residual forces and moments. This study has been accepted and is nearing publication in the Multibody System Dynamics journal. Sample data for one task (Squat-20) and all OpenSim model and setup files for the five modelling approaches are freely available.
