Accuracy of muscle moment arms estimated from MRI-based musculoskeletal models of the lower extremity.

OBJECTIVE Biomechanical models that compute the lengths and moment arms of soft tissues are broadly applicable to the treatment of movement abnormalities and the planning of orthopaedic surgical procedures. The goals of this study were to: (i) develop methods to construct subject-specific biomechanical models from magnetic resonance (MR) images, (ii) create… CONTINUE READING
