Today neuromuscular simulations are used in sev- eral fields, such as diagnostics and planing of surgery, to get a deeper understanding of the musculoskeletal system. Dur- ing the last year, new models and datasets have been pre- sented which can provide us with more in-depth simulations and results. The same kind of development has occurred in the field of studying the human knee joint using complex three dimensional finite element models and simulations. In the field ofmusculoskeletal simulations, no such knee joints can be used. Instead themost common knee joint description is an idealized knee joint with limited accuracy or a planar knee joint which only describes the knee motion in a plane. In this paper, a new knee joint based on both equations and geometry is introduced and compared to a common clinical planar knee joint. The two kinematical models are analyzed using a gait motion, and are evaluated using the muscle ac- tivation and joint reaction forces which are compared to in- vivo measured forces. We show that we are able to predict the lateral, anterior and longitudinal moments, and that we are able to predict better knee and hip joint reaction forces. [less ▲]

In motion capture, a standard procedure to obtain the bone motion is the use of skin markers. However, because of the relative motion of the skin and the bones, so-called soft tissue artefacts (STA), the recorded motion does not accurately describe the movement of the bones. To compute joint reaction forces and perhaps limit STA, most musculo-skeletal models use underlying joint models. The knee is usually modeled as a simple hinge joint. However such approaches do not lead to a better estimation of the real motion1. In this work the hinge joint is improved by taking into account the morphological features of the joint surfaces.

In this paper, the in-vivo loads of the knee joint provided by an instrumented prosthesis (Fregly et al., 2010, Lin et al., 2010, Kim et al., 2009) are compared to the results obtained from an implementation of the Klein Horsman data set (2007) in the AnyBody Modeling System. The lateral and medial knee contact forces are estimated directly from the knee modeled as a modified revolute joint. As such, this study presents what can be achieved by estimating the knee contact forces from a simplified knee model. [less ▲]
