During preoperative planning of total hip arthroplasty, the patients’ biomechanics is widely reduced to geometrical parameters. To provide the orthopedist more functional biomechanical parameters, a method is shown to model a patient-specific musculoskeletal human model via CT-/MRI-images in OpenSim. Main focus of this contribution is the setup of the passive musculoskeletal system. A generic human model and a segmented dataset of bones from the hip area serve as the basis for the modelling process. During the method the generic model is processed by scaling it to the anthropometry of the patient and adjusting subject-specific kinematics and shapes gathered from the segmented data. Finally, to reach the patient-specific representation the segmented bones are integrated into the model.
