In this work we model human hip joint. We determine certain parameters of the hip joint and make relation to existing parametrization based on two-dimensional radiological pictures. Initial proposals as to usefulness of these parameters are made. We develop a Java 3-D tool that facilitates obtaining 3D based parameters.
