Knee extension data available for creating models of the patellar mechanism

By Kevin Shelburne

We have placed new data on Digital Commons @ DU consisting of in vitro measurements of a knee extension exercise for three cadaver knees. The measures were used to create, calibrate, and validate models of the patellar mechanism. Details are described in:
Validation of predicted patellofemoral mechanics in a finite element model of the healthy and cruciate-deficient knee. Ali AA, Shalhoub SS, Cyr AJ, Fitzpatrick CK, Maletsky LP, Rullkoetter PJ, Shelburne KB. J Biomech 2016 49(2):302-9.
