Knee Previous micro scale studies of cartilage are not generally data of surface data of surface level scales, in particular by the movement apparatus mechanics of the knee.. Macro, many studies have looked at how the various components of a knee joint – cartilage, meniscus, ligaments and bones – respond to weight and other external loads, however, wanted to understand Erdemir and colleague Scott C. Sibole better how these correspond to large mechanical forces on the resulting deformation of individual cartilage cells.
Led by Ahmet Erdemir, the team uses the powerful computing systems of the Ohio Supercomputer Center, state-of – the-art mathematical representations of the human body to develop, such as movement patterns and loads to understand joints deform the surrounding tissues and cells. The director of the the director of the Computational Biomodeling Core and a faculty member in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Lerner Research Institute in Cleveland.The study analyzed data from 94 children heart transplant aged less than 1 year and 18 years old.
The first author is of the trial was Mousumi Moulik, out of the Division of Pediatrics University of Texas Medical School. Texas Children’s Hospital scholars were on the study.
