Knee Reaction Force

Hi,

it is known to me that the hip reaction forces were measured by several
authors as Bergmann (1993, 2001 etc.) and are of multiple body weight
(e.g. about 3 times body weight for normal walking).

But what about the knee reaction forces? So far I’ve found no
literature to compare the calculated knee reaction force (e.g. for
walking, going up- and downstairs etc.) with measured or former
calculated data.

Do you know therefore some references for knee reaction forces in order
to validate the calculated forces with former studies or in vivo
measurements?

Best regards,

Thomas

Hello Thomas,

Please have a look at http://www.orthoload.com/

It’s the homepage of the Charité group. There is plenty of their data also
some for the knee joint.

Best regards,

Sebastian
