A modelling and visualisation tool for use in computer assisted shoulder surgery is currently under development, based on the finite element musculo-skeletal model described in van der Helm (1994). Kinematics of the upper limb are input to the model, and optimised muscle and joint forces form the output. The model has previously been shown to simulate musculo-skeletal behaviour in the healthy upper limb (van der Helm, 1994). The aim of this study was to validate predictions of the model in the context of a tendon transfer procedure.
