This paper deals with human knee and hip joints’ forces in moderate squatting motion. The model developed for squatting is validated through simulations for walking (the stance phase of gait cycle) which are compared with data available in the literature. The knee model is two dimensional and includes tibia, femur, ligamentous knee structures, and muscles. The model is used to investigate the ligament, contact and muscle forces during both moderate squatting and walking.
