AbstractAn evaluation of the model of loadings acting on the femoral bone during the whole gait cycle was the main aim of the paper. A computer simulation of the musculoskeletal system based on the gait data collected during gait was used to determine the muscle forces as well as the hip joint reaction. Kinematic parameters as well as the ground reaction force for ninety-nine healthy persons of both sexes (18–36 years old) who had no history of musculoskeletal disease were registered during normal gait with preferred speed and used as inputs for musculoskeletal modelling and numerical simulation with the use of the AnyBody software. Time waveforms of the values of force generated by 21 muscles having attachments on the femoral bone as well as the hip joint reaction force were obtained. Directions of particular forces were presented using a femoral coordinate system. Attachment points for all muscle forces were obtained on the basis of the unscaled standard model with the length of the femur equal to 0.41 m. The presented model of loadings acting on the femoral bone element can be useful for the biomechanical analysis of bone development and remodelling as well as for the optimisation of implant or bone stabilizer design and pre-clinical testing.
