Immediate Action Items:


  1. Discuss immediate action items from last meeting.
    • Tara explained the tdms file organization to Craig and Snehal. This file type is used to store robotics data collected during mechanical testing of the joints.
    • Craig started the script to simulate rigid body motion for pivot shift study.
    • Snehal has started familiarizing herself with the OpenKnee generation one,version 2 model and is running the model by modifying the model file.

    • Snehal also filled out online form with Tekscan for a quote for pressure sensors. She will contact them by phone to expedite the process.
    • Robb will be meeting with the facilities people to discuss backup power for freezer in the robot lab.
  2. Discuss oks007 data.
    • The team concluded that the testing for oks007 went fairly smoothly and any deviations are noted on the relevant wiki page.
    • All the data will be uploaded to in house data management system (Midas) and sample MRI scans and joint data will be added to oks007 page for posterity.
  3. Decide immediate actions items for next meeting.
    • Immediate action items were assigned to members and agreed upon by the team.
  4. Other.
    • Extra set of tissue testing clamps is necessary and the only available set is being shared by several labs. Snehal will follow up on getting new clamps made.
    • As of now, a specimen is not available for testing next month and Snehal will follow up on orders with Science Care (4 knees pending).
    • Snehal will also make sure the correct freezer key (for third floor walk-in freezer) is available for future tests.
    • The group also discussed the pivot shift study.
      • Headings of kinematic/kinetic data provided in spreadsheets were discussed.
      • Test time for pivot shift was 1.36 s (original surgeon speed) * 50 (times slower) = 68s.
      • TDMS data file version (used for the cadaver pivot shift study) is different than existing SimVitro software version.
