Overall purposes of the project are:
1) To provide free access to three-dimensional finite element representations of the knee joint
2) Open development of knee models for collaborative testing and use
Open Knee(s) is aimed to provide free access to three-dimensional finite element representations of the knee joint. The development platform is open to enable any interested party to use, test, and edit the model; in a nut shell get involved with the project at its early stages.
While everybody can access the information at this site, contributing to the development efforts requires one to be a member of the project team. If interested, please contact the project administrators and go to the wiki site, http://wiki.simtk.org/openknee/.
This project is currently funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, National Institutes of Health (1R01GM104139). Previous activities were partially funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, National Institutes of Health (1R01EB009643, also see http://simtk.org/home/j2c).

Open Knee wiki launchedFeb 21, 2010
The wiki will serve as the site for development of the knee model.
Open Knee site launchedFeb 18, 2010
The project site for Open Knee has been created.. The efforts are aimed towards open development of a finite element model of the knee joint freely available for anyone interested.
Mesh and model files can be used for finite element analysis:
- To investigate knee biomechanics
- To learn mechanical function of the knee
- To practice finite element analysis
