Leading Team Member: Craig Bennetts

Supporting Team Members: Snehal Chokhandre, Ahmet Erdemir

Timeline:

Data Location:

Data was received from the imaging facilities and uploaded to in-house data management server (http://cobicore.lerner.ccf.org/midas; only accessible within Cleveland Clinic network). Raw DICOM files were stored in the folder Open Knee(s) --> Private --> oks007 --> MRI --> DICOM

DICOM files were converted to NIfTI files, stored in the folder Open Knee(s) --> Private --> oks007 --> MRI --> NIFTI of the in-house data management server. NIfTI files were also disseminated to the public in the 'Downloads' section of the project website, https://simtk.org/home/openknee, under the package oks007.

Data storage and dissemination were accomplished based on the updated imaging specifications, see Revision as of April 22, 2015.

Protocol Deviations:

  1. None.

Testing

Reference Specification: Specifications/ExperimentationJointMechanics - Revision as of February 3, 2015

Leading Team Member: Tara Bonner

Supporting Team Members:

Timeline:

Data Location:

Data was received from the robotics testing facility and uploaded to in-house data management server (http://cobicore.lerner.ccf.org/midas; only accessible within Cleveland Clinic network). Zipped folders were stored in the folder Open Knee(s) --> Private --> oks007 --> JointMechanics under relevant joint related folders.

Zipped folders were extracted and organized in the dissemination folder under Open Knee(s) --> Private --> oks007 --> JointMechanics --> DISSEMINATION of the in-house data management server. DISSEMINATION folder was downloaded and disseminated to the public in the 'Downloads' section of the project website, https://simtk.org/home/openknee, under the package oks007.

Data storage and dissemination were accomplished based on the updated joint mechanics testing specifications, see Revision as of October 21, 2015.

Protocol Deviations:

  1. None.

Notes:

  1. During tibiofemoral joint testing, 1 Nm internal rotation torque (IE laxity testing at 30 & 90 degrees flexion -- possibly others too) was not captured properly. The IE torque was at 0.5 Nm and off-axis loads (varus) were not minimized to zero. Other levels of loads were fine. A separate trajectory was ran with 1 Nm internal rotation torque starting at 90 degrees flexion down to 0 degrees flexion.

  2. During patellofemoral joint testing at 0 degrees flexion the sensor did not register much pressure and the location of the pressure sensor needed to be readjusted after the test to accommodate higher flexion angles.
  3. During patellofemoral joint testing during 30 degrees flexion there was a discontinuity in pressure measurements on the medial side. This may be attributed to sensor wrinkling or cartilage degradation at that area (needs to be checked).
  4. During patellofemoral joint testing at 60 degrees flexion, 600 N loading was repeated as the clamp cover hose was suspected to catch the fixture edge.

  1. The team decided to postpone the cartilage dissection to the following day. As a result, bone and cartilage were kept in the fridge another night for dissection in the following morning. All ligament, tendon, menisci segments and secondary tissues were dissected and frozen.

Notes:

  1. Fat bursa and transverse ligament were obtained as secondary tissues.
