Fracture healing experiments are increasingly performed on rats. Unfortunately, the musculo-skeletal loads in the hindlimb are not known. Nevertheless, these loads are essential for the proper design of these experiments. The study presents a numerical model to determine the muscle forces in the hindlimb during normal gait. An inverse-dynamics software (UFBSIM, [1,2]) was applied to perform the simulation.
