The knee is at particular risk for damage, arthritis, or both as we grow older. Mother Nature designed the human knee to last about 30 years, so as life spans across the globe continue to increase, so do the problems associated with knees.

The Challenge

The Scripps Clinic in California wanted to give patients with knee injury viable solutions to achieve optimum knee function.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Scripps ealth researchers use Abaqus FEA from SIMULIA to optimize new designs and explore surgical alternatives.


Abaqus FEA helps researchers model complex material properties, customize knee replacements to each patient, and optimally position a replacement meniscus in its new knee environment.
