An experimental setup was developed for statically measuring seven vertical and three horizontal reaction forces on the foot. In the setup, the leg can be simultaneously loaded (1) by a vertical force, (2) by an externally applied axial moment, and (3) by simulated muscle forces. The foot is free to invert under influence of the external loads. Statical analysis and test experiments were used for evaluation. The setup can be used in combination with Roentgen photogrammetry to measure bone positions simultaneously with forces.
