Development and application of subject-specific musculoskeletal models in patients with knee osteoarthritis (KOA).
The research theme of the KNEEMO ITN is “towards targeted and tailored interventions for knee osteoarthritis”, and focuses on identifying the right patients for the right treatment at the right time. There are several individual research projects focusing on different areas.
Identification of new clinical subgroups (‘subgroup phenotyping’) in patients with knee osteoarthritis (KOA)
Project: Gait modification by real-time visual feedback in patients with knee osteoarthritis
Effect of a soft brace on pain, knee stability and activity limitations in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
Biomechanical effects of different orthotic interventions and their clinical relevance in the daily life of patients with medial compartment knee osteoarthritis.
Physical activity levels in knee osteoarthritis patients during daily living
Biomechanical factors impact on the development of knee osteoarthritis
Impact of exercise therapy on knee cartilage: systematic reviews and meta-analyses
Investigating varying levels of knee joint model complexity using subject-specific data
Developing a Software Solution for Automated Thigh Muscle and Adipose Tissue Segmentation and the Role of Thigh Muscle Cross-Sectional Areas and Fat Tissue for Structural Progression of Knee Osteoarthritis
Ambulatory Knee Load and Physical Activity Monitoring
Development of subject-specific knee joint models in patients with knee osteoarthritis (KOA) by combining musculoskeletal and finite element modeling.
I am from Australia and joined the KNEEMO project in April 2017. My current research is in assessing participant’s knee joint load during daily living activities outside of the laboratory environment.
