A Pathway to Improving the Functional Outcomes of Knee Implants


Workshop scope

This workshop will aim at providing attendees the core concepts in evaluating and improving the biomechanical outcomes of total or partial knee replacements. Current state-of-the-art methodologies involving custom knee testing rigs and dynamical numerical analysis will be presented that focus on achieving adequate kinematics and loads, followed by methods to quantify and optimize the tribological features and wear resistance. >> Read more
