Contemporary computational models potentially allow the practical incorporation of the effects of a joint capsule on both motion and the loads transmitted to the other parts of the joint. However, the required material properties have not been available for this purpose. To determine these properties we took both hip joints from five fresh-frozen, nondiseased cadavers. Following dissection and potting of the hemi-pelvis, distraction of the intact joint was conducted to measure the structural… CONTINUE READING
