  • Help Required on Femoral Nailing

    Dear List Members

    I am Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Natal,
    Durban, South Africa. I am currently working on a project to
    determine fatigue properites on an intra-medullary nail for the
    femur. Before the fatigue test can be performed, I need to know
    what type of loading conditions occur at the knee. In particular,
    I'm interested in the resultant forces due to muscles, body weight
    and ground reaction forces. If anyone has come across any such
    analysis or information, I would greatly appreciate it you could
    share it with me.

    Thanking you in advance

    Chetan Hira.
