Hi There,

Hi There,
There is no straight way to calculate the knee joint load while running.
You need either to implant a transducer in the joint or measure the force on a special plate and do calculation that are dependent upon the tibia placement etc.
To read a little more about way to do it you can read this article which will give you an idea.
