Abstract

Using an interactive, 3D, kinematic simulation of the human skeleton, the motion of the sacro-iliac (SI) joint is modeled based upon descriptions available in the literature. The major ligaments are added to the simulation data structure using deformable cubic Bspline curve paths. Ligament strains were generated and studied in response to the motion simulations. Results improve our understanding of sacro-iliac kinematics and highlight the importance of further studies to elucidate pathological as well as normal SI joint and ligament function.
