A survey of formal methods for determining the centre of rotation of ball joints.
The determination of an accurate centre of rotation (CoR) from segment marker positions is of interest across a wide range of applications, but particularly for clinical gait analysis and forExpand

Tibio‐femoral loading during human gait and stair climbing
Surgical intervention of the knee joint routinely endeavors to recreate a physiologically normal joint loading environment. The loading conditions resulting from osteotomies, fracture treatment,Expand

Influence of muscle forces on femoral strain distribution.
Musculoskeletal loading influences the stresses and strains within the human femur and thereby affects the processes of bone modeling and remodeling. It is essential for implant design andExpand

A survey of formal methods for determining functional joint axes.
Axes of rotation e.g. at the knee, are often generated from clinical gait analysis data to be used in the assessment of kinematic abnormalities, the diagnosis of disease, or the ongoing monitoring ofExpand

Determination of muscle loading at the hip joint for use in pre-clinical testing.
The stability of joint endoprostheses depends on the loading conditions to which the implant-bone complex is exposed. Due to a lack of appropriate muscle force data, less complex loading conditionsExpand

Physiologically based boundary conditions in finite element modelling.
Finite element analysis has been used extensively in the study of bone loading and implant performance, such as in the femur. The boundary conditions applied vary widely, generally producingExpand

The early fracture hematoma and its potential role in fracture healing.
Research regarding the potency and potential of the fracture hematoma has begun to receive increasing attention. However, currently there is a paucity of relevant literature on the capability andExpand

Architecture of the osteocyte network correlates with bone material quality
In biological tissues such as bone, cell function and activity crucially depend on the physical properties of the extracellular matrix which the cells synthesize and condition. During bone formationExpand

Altered cartilage mechanics and histology in knee osteoarthritis: relation to clinical assessment (ICRS Grade).
OBJECTIVE Substantial changes in articular cartilage composition and mechanical properties occur during the development of osteoarthritis (OA). While softening in the initial stage is reported andExpand

Hydrogels with tunable stress relaxation regulate stem cell fate and activity
Natural extracellular matrices (ECMs) are viscoelastic and exhibit stress relaxation. However, hydrogels used as synthetic ECMs for three-dimensional (3D) culture are typically elastic. Here, weExpand
