The downloads include modeling data (bone, cartilage, and meniscus geometries, ligament insertion/origin locations, ligament zero-load lengths) and complete knee models in the multibody framework. MBKnee_4 is the most recent model and is derived from a 29 year old female. Additional information and instructions for each knee are provided with the package data. Please post all inquiries through the site forum.

MBKnee_4
MBKnee_4 was created using in vivo data from a 29 year old female (mass = 70 kg, height = 170 cm). This package contains geometries, ligament insertion/origin and zero-load length information, a simulation video, instructions, and an ADAMS cmd file.

MBKnee_1
This package contains data for the first knee (MBKnee_1). Male right knee, Age: 77, Height 70 in, Weight 220 lbs. Included are knee geometries (Femur bone with cartilage, Patella bone with cartilage, and Tibia bone with cartilage), subject specific insertion locations and zero load lengths for ligaments crossing the knee (2 bundles for the cruciate ligaments and 3 bundles for the collateral ligaments), and two mulitbody models of this knee in ADAMS (MSC Software Corporation, Santa Ana, CA).

MBKnee_2
This package contains data for the second knee (MBKnee_2). Female left knee, Age: 55, Height 67 in, Weight 160 lbs. Included are knee geometries (Femur bone with cartilage, Patella bone with cartilage, Tibia bone, Tibia medial cartilage, and Tibia lateral cartilage), subject specific insertion locations and zero load lengths for ligaments crossing the knee (2 bundles for the cruciate ligaments and 3 bundles for the collateral ligaments), and two mulitbody models of this knee in MD.ADAMS (MSC Software Corporation, Santa Ana, CA). This model represents the tibia cartilage as multiple (224) rigid bodies.
