The Lerner Research Institute is home to all laboratory-based, translational and clinical research at Cleveland Clinic. Our mission is to understand the underlying causes of human diseases and to develop new treatments and cures.
Open Knee is aimed to provide free access to a three-dimensional finite element representation of the knee joint for any desired purpose. 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/.
