The foot is an intricate three dimensional complex that requires insight into both superficial and deep structures to understand mechanical function. Palpation and clinical tests assist with superficial treatment while radiography is invaluable for interior features. Computational modeling has obtained the capacity to predict mechanical function of diarthrodial joints, with a recent model developed of the lower leg [1]. The aim of this work was to extend the predictive capabilities of the lower leg model to simulate stance weightbearing. Comparisons were made to measurements taken from weightbearing loads applied to the cadaveric limb.
