The simVITRO based UMS allows researchers to simulate loading conditions on a cadaveric joint by using actuators to simulate muscle forces while simultaneously applying external loads to the joint. Applications of this type of testing are numerous and can be used to provide insights into orthopaedics, joint kinematics, surgical techniques, disease pathologies, and many other areas.
Anatomical descriptions of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) typically describe two distinct fiber bundles, the anterior-medial bundle (AMB) and the posterior-lateral bundle (PLB). The aim of this study was to determine the role of the native AMB and PLB via robotic testing in a cadaver model with and without weightbearing loading conditions.
