Abstract: Sum ma ryThe human hip joint is capable of carrying loads exceeding several times body weight The distribution of these loads over the load-bearing cartilage surfaces in the hip is of considerable interest in terms of studying the behavior of cartilage under various loading conditions. A modified Moore prosthesis has been designed which is capable of measuring in vivo the spatial and temporal pressure variations generated by the loads carried by the hip. The pressures as measured by this device will not only …
