The paper aims to analyze the human ankle joint reaction forces with a multibody system approach, using MSC Adams software and its features. The paper presents the results provided by the simulation of a spatial mechanical structure, which replicates the human's locomotion system in terms of bone structure. The mechanical structure used for determining the human ankle joint reaction forces consists of 7 kinematic elements linked by 6 spherical joints constrained to 1 DOF each.
