Abstract

A basic task in biomechanics is the precise analysis of human movements and to investigate muscle forces that are responsible for these movements. Using inverse dynamics with a focus on the lower extremities the knee model type is of major interest. It is well known that the calculated muscle forces depend on the knee model type. With this study the influence of different knee model types and femoropatellar model types were investigated.
