Dear Bioch-L subscribers,

anybody out there who would know about literature including the
magnitude of the resultant forces (or of the axial component of the
resultant forces) acting on the head of the femur (or of the prosthesis)
at rest in men? At rest means when the hip is unloaded, that is, there
is no load bearing, nor the muscle groups acting on the articulation are
contracted. I looked through the literature, especially on papers with
data recorded with instrumented prosthesis,but this value is never
mentioned (like in papers by Bergmann G. et al).

Thank you

Luisa Monti
