A three-dimensional dynamic computational model was developed for the dual purposes of predicting and replicating joint loading generated by a five-axis dynamic knee simulator. The model was verified through an analog knee that was constrained for accurate modeling and instrumented to directly measure joint forces. The verified model was then used to generate control profiles to the five axes of the simulator for replication of desired joint loading. Reproduction of a walking profile is demonstrated.
