Tibial Plateau Modelling

Hi All,

I would like some help with modelling Tibial Plateau contact forces. I would like to model the contact forces here so to obtain forces perpendicular to the plateau; however i am unsure how to go about this. Is it simply a manner of defining a coordinate system here? If so or if not are there some tutorials pertaining to this i should go through? I have been through all of them but am unsure if i have missed something. Or are the current knee forces modelled in Mocap already a representation of tibial plateau contact forces.

Any help would be appreciated.
Kind regards,


Hi Nick,

The forces are somewhat normal, but may not be perfect in the sense that you want it do be. We would recommend to create an AnyForceMomentMeasure object that would recompute the joint reaction force as you need it. Please read the manual on this class.
