  • Passive Hip Moments in Abduction/Adduction and Rotation

    Greetings,

    I have been unable to find any studies describing the normal passive elastic
    joint moment (moment vs. angle) of the human hip joint in either:

    -abduction/adduction, or

    -internal/external rotation.

    Is anyone aware of any such studies? I have found studies providing normal
    passive elastic hip joint moments in flexion/extension including:

    --Yoon Y, Mansour J. The passive elastic moment at the hip. J.
    Biomechanics 1982; 15(12): 905-910.

    --Vrahas M, Brand R, Brown T, Andrews J. Contribution of passive tissue to
    the intersegmental moments at the hip. J. Biomechanics 1990; 23(4):
    357-360.

    --Riener R, Edrich T. Identification of passive elastic joint moments in
    the lower extremities. J. Biomechanics 1999; 32: 539-544.

    --Lee R, Munn J. Passive moment about the hip in straight leg raising.
    Clinical Biomechanics 2000; 15: 330-334.

    --Edrich T, Riener R, Quintern J. Analysis of passive elastic joint moments
    in paraplegics. IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering 2000; 47(8):
    1058-1065.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide, and I will summarize and
    resend results.

    Best Regards,

    Jason
