Musculoskeletal Models

Scott Delp

This data set provides the parameters needed to develop a computer model of the human lower limb. It is based on a model developed at the VA Rehabilitation R&D Center in Palo Alto California from 1987-1990. All data may be used and copied for non-commercial use. The data set includes descriptions of bone surfaces, joint kinematics, muscle lines of action, and muscle force-generating parameters. This data allows one to calculate the lengths, moment arms, forces, and joint moments generated by forty three muscles of the lower limb. The data set is presented in several files.

This is a geometric model of a human pelvis. It is not meshed; there are just nodes and lines.
