Future improvements of diagnostic and surgical procedures in orthopedics require developments in measurement systems, 3-D computer-graphics visualization methods and basic information about musculoskeletal biomechanics. For these developments, the use of computational methods becomes increasingly important. Computer simulation models describing musculoskeletal dynamics, joint kinematics, hard and soft tissue mechanics, and strain-adaptive processes in tissues are required. Due to the geometrical and material complexities of the musculoskeletal parts, the lack of experimental data, and the biological variability, the development of dependable simulation models is a difficult task, in complexity probably unsurpassed by any field of present day mechanical engineering.
