Accurate assessment of human muscle forces during walking could significantly aid in the analysis and treatment of common neuromusculoskeletal disorders such as osteoarthritis , stroke, and cerebral palsy. However, the inability to measure muscle forces in vivo along with the inability to calculate muscle forces directly has greatly hindered achievement of this goal. Due to its complexity, the knee is a particularly difficult joint for assessing in vivo muscle forces.
