Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that there is great potential for the generation of a useful three dimensional dynamic model of a very complicated musculoskeletal joint, the human knee, via the union of a standard mechanism package (ADAMS) and already published joint modeling data. ADAMS, Automatic Dynamic Analysis of Mechanical Systems, is a three-dimensional mechanical analysis package which will provide time-response data for a large variety of mechanisms with specified geometric constraints. A working model of a human knee joint was generated which could be expanded and improved upon to potentially simulate various knee pathologies or orthoses.
