Open Knee funding for next generation models
By Ahmet Erdemir
Open Knee received funding from NIGMS, NIH (R01GM104139). This collaboration with Simbios aims
i) 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, and
ii) 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.
Please follow the project at https://simtk.org/home/openknee. All are invited to provide feedback and to contribute to this open modeling and simulation approach in joint biomechanics.
