This project includes 10 fully subject-specific lower limb musculoskeletal models which were used to predict individualized forces through the ACL during treadmill walking. Simulations with these models are informed by motion capture and dynamic bi-plane radiography of the knee joint to fully capture in vivo bone motions and accurately predict ligament dynamics. The accuracy of the predicted forces confirms the validity of this subject-specific modelling framework and the OpenSim platform in predicting ACL dynamics, which could be useful in future studies seeking to use forward simulations to predict post-surgical and/or rehabilitation outcomes
