Knowledge of implant loading is critical to improving component designs, surgical techniques, and rehabilitation protocols so that joint replacement life is extended postoperative function is optimized. Determination of the forces applied to joint replacement components during human movement is a challenging goal, however, that is not readily met through experimental methods. Instrumented implants do permit direct measurement of implant loads , but instrumented implants do not give a complete characterization of the contact mechanics nor are they practical for incorporation into the implant design cycle.
