Aims:
  1. Characterize the hip joint contact forces that result during ARED-like exercise through computer simulation.
  2. Examine how the use of gravity replacement loads affect hip joint forces in microgravity and partial gravity environments.
  3. Perform a sensitivity analysis to examine and optimize the contributions of muscle forces to joint forces.
