SUTD together with the University of Miyazaki developed a novel methodology to provide non-invasive analysis of meniscal implants.
The human knee joint is the largest and complex joint in the body compared to other joints. It has various hard and soft tissue elements to provide stability and proper functioning including the meniscus. The meniscus, a cartilage between the thighbone and the shinbone, acts as a shock absorber to dissipate the body weight and reduce friction during physical activities. Considering, the knee joint is the most used joint in the body, meniscal tears are the most common knee injury due to wear and tear as we age as well as injuries due to sports and trauma.
