Knee Flexion Mechanics

Illustration of motion of the knee

Motion tracking is used to
prescribe motion in FE
model of the knee.

We are interested in understanding the biomechanics of the knee in deep flexion. Magnetic resonance (MR) images are used to identify bone segments, and a motion tracking algorithm developed by VirtualScopics, LLC is used to quantify joint motion between sequential MR scans. MR images are also used to generate finite element models, which can be used to study the biomechanics of knee injuries.
