  • Looking for a computational knee model

    Looking for a computational knee model, including femoral and tibial
    geometry, ligament properties, patella, and muscles

    I am currently developing a force-sensing device for total knee
    arthroplasty to help the surgeon balance the ligaments. This new device
    intraoperatively measures the amplitude and location of the compressive
    force for each condyle.

    In order to validate and "understand" (interprete) our measurements from a
    biomechanical point of view, we would like to use a computational knee
    model which includes femoral, tibial geometry, ligament properties, patella
    and muscles.

    Can anybody point out references of similar work?
    Is there a platform/software which allows easy implementation of such a

    Thanks in advance for your contributions.
