An Instron-validated hip model integrated with electromyography-estimated muscle forces is used to evaluate acetabular stress patterns in the natural hip. Muscle forces primarily reduced peak stress in the pelvis compared with applying a net force through the femur. Muscle forces also increased stress where large muscles have small insertion sites. This has implications for the pelvis where bone stress and strain are key excitation variables used to initiate bone remodelling.
