Reference tool kinematics-kinetics and tissue surface strain data during fundamental surgical acts on multi-layer tissue

Tyler Schimmoeller & Ahmet Erdemir
This site contains data to capture tissue-tool interactions of basic surgical acts performed on upper leg extremities. Tool positions and loads were measured while performing 16 different operations, which included 8 different techniques: indenting, pinching, cutting, widening, closing, everting, suturing, and retracting. In addition, 3D surface strain measurement was captured during initial indentation, pinching, and cutting trials at the skin surface. Further details of the analysis can be found in the publication "Reference tool kinematics-kinetics...

This project deals with the calibration of foot-ground and subject-exoskeleton models to then predict new subject-exoskeleton collaborative movements and their forces. We developed a calibration process to estimate the parameter values of foot-ground contact and subject-exoskeleton contact models, so that these models can reproduce experimental data of sit-to-stand trials with the exoskeleton in passive mode. Then, we can predict new sit-to-stand movements of the subject wearing an exoskeleton in active mode. This project provides the...

In Vitro Reference Models for Multi-Layer Tissue Structures (MULTIS)

Tyler Schimmoeller & Ahmet Erdemir
This dataset can be used to understand the mechanics of multi-layer tissue structures of the limbs, particularly of the lower and upper legs and arms. It includes anatomical and mechanical data collected on extremities of 9 adult subjects (5 male, 4 female) from the general population. The dataset consists of computed tomography (CT) imaging, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and ultrasound scanning performed with a load transducer for in vitro characterization of skin, fat, and muscle...

ReadySim v1.0: A Computational Framework for Building Explicit Finite Element Musculoskeletal Simulations Directly from Motion Laboratory Data

Donald Hume & Kevin Shelburne
ReadySim aims to provide a means for researchers to perform musculoskeletal simulations directly in a finite element framework. Both the framework and the models are made open source to improve the dissemination of knowledge and drive continuous improvements to model design and modeling techniques. The software uses MATLAB and Python to interface with ABAQUS/Explicit input and output files and includes modules for model segment scaling, kinematics estimation, and muscle force optimization. The JobQueue API allows...
