Soft tissue motion influences skeletal loads during impacts

Soft tissue motion occurs as impulsive loads are applied to the skeletal system. It has been demonstrated that the wave like motion of these wobbling masses can reduce the loads acting on the musculoskeletal system. This is an important concept to consider, whether the loads acting on the musculoskeletal system are being determined using either inverse or direct dynamics.
