    Look at the VAKHUM website:

    and clink on the "Data" link.

    VAKHUM was a project (funded by the European Commission) that created a large morphology and motion data database related to the lower limb. Part of it is available from the above website (including CT, geometric and FEM models + motion data for an entire pair of lower limbs, and documentation).

    Good luck !
