Variations in hip joint morphology have been suggested tot give rise to altered load distributions and peak joint stresses. Recent literature indicates that these mechanisms could be responsible for the development of early hip osteoarthritis. The aim of this thesis will be to explore the impact of variation in hip joint anatomy on loading patterns during daily living activities.
