This is the development site of Open Knee(s) - Generation 2. The development efforts for this generation of Open Knee(s) were organized by Ahmet Erdemir and supported by CoBi Core and BioRobotics Testing Core of the Cleveland Clinic, Simbios of Stanford University, and Musculoskeletal Research Laboratories of University of Utah. This project is currently funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, National Institutes of Health (R01GM104139).
The specific aims of Open Knee(s) are
- to provide an open, freely available, and collaborative development, testing, simulation and dissemination platform for in silico exploration of the biomechanics of healthy and diseased knees.
- to develop in silico biomechanical models of healthy and diseased knee joints of different genders and ages, supported by specimen-specific joint and tissue level experimental mechanics.
