Knee Implant Simulation

Virtual Soft Tissue (VST), a highly detailed and programmable computer model from AMTI, accounts for the missing biological structure of the knee during simulation testing of joint implants. The simulator is designed to test the function and durability of implants by recreating loads and movements associated with various activities so that the response of the implant can be evaluated. In particular, VST simulation represents the response of the soft tissues surrounding the knee joint (soft tissue constraint) more accurately than the simplistic linear models and mechanical springs of earlier simulation technologies.
