Fighting Knee Pain with Finite Element Modeling

Download PDF

The Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Research Laboratory at USC, is using HyperWorks to investigate why so many people are incapacitated by knee pain when others are not. This is a tough, intractable issue for people with arthritic knees since there is no cure for arthritis today. Early detection can help and is the focus of USC’s work. (HyperMesh is used to create finite element models to analyze stress on the cartilage of the joint.)
