In recent years, numerous scientific investigations have studied the anatomical, biomechanical and functional role of structures involved in the human knee joint. The Finite Element Method (FEM) has been seen as an interesting tool to study and simulate biosystems. It has been extensively used to analyse the knee joint and various types of knee diseases and rehabilitation procedures such as the High Tibial Osteotomy (HTO). This work presents a review on FEM analysis of the human knee joint and HTO knee surgery, and discusses how adequate this computational tool is for this type of biomedical applications. Hence, various studies addressing the knee joint based on Finite Element Analysis (FEA) are reviewed, and an overview of clinical and biomechanical studies on the optimization of the correction angle of the postoperative knee surgery is provided.

The objective of this study was to develop a dynamic three-dimensional subject specific computational knee model by using finite element method and validate the finite element model using a validated multi-body model developed in MSC - ADAMS. The geometric input data required to create subject specific model was obtained from Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the specimen knee. The kinematic input data was obtained from simulation of the knee in a dynamic knee simulator. The three dimensional knee model was created using MR images of specimen knee. Hexahedral element meshing was performed for the construction of finite element model and ABAQUS is used for analysis purpose. Various studies were performed to identify the effects of the ABAQUS input parameters on the accuracy of the results. The finite element (FE) model was then simulated for the kinematic input obtained from a ten second squat cycle and output values for reaction force in the fixed part were recorded. The validation of FR model was conducted by comparing the results with the validated ADAMS model. Finally future improvements are suggested.

Medical and Service Robotics integrate the most recent achievements in mechanics, mechatronics, computer science, haptic and teleoperation devices together with adaptive control algorithms. The book includes topics such as surgery robotics, assist devices, rehabilitation technology, surgical instrumentation and Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) as examples for medical robotics. Autonomous cleaning, tending, logistics, surveying and rescue robots, and elderly and healthcare robots are typical examples of topics from service robotics. This is the Proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Medical and Service Robots, held in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2014. It presents an overview of current research directions and fields of interest. It is divided into three sections, namely 1) assistive and rehabilitation devices; 2) surgical robotics; and 3) educational and service robotics. Most contributions are strongly anchored on collaborations between technical and medical actors, engineers, surgeons and clinicians. Biomedical robotics and the rapidly growing service automation fields have clearly overtaken the “classical” industrial robotics and automatic control centered activity familiar to the older generation of roboticists.
