Reference Models for Multi-Layer Tissue Structures

What is being modeled?
Skin, fat, muscle layers of musculoskeletal extremities
Description & purpose of resource

This resource is the project website to provide fundamental data, open and freely accessible databases of tissue mechanical and anatomical properties, models of multi-layer tissue structures of musculoskeletal extremities.

This project aims to establish the founding knowledge, data and models for the mechanics of multi-layer tissue structures of the limbs, particularly of the lower and upper legs and arms. The activity is targeted to promote scientific research in layered tissue structures and allow reliable virtual surgery simulations for clinical training and certification.

This research and development project titled “Reference Models for Multi-Layer Tissue Structures" was conducted by the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and was made possible by a contract vehicle which was awarded and administered by the U.S. Army Medical Research & Materiel Command under award number: W81XWH-15-1-0232.
