Personalization of Ankle Implant using 3D Scan data : Simulation driven design optimization and testing.

Ankle arthroplasty initially had limited success however the newer generations of total ankle replacement have shown good medium term results. Among the various reasons for this change include a better overall understanding of ankle biomechanics; lessons learnt from hip and knee arthroplasty and improved ankle implant designs that offer better mobility. In this work we describe methodology of designing a patient specific implant for total ankle replacement and virtual testing new implants using finite element simulation.

Indeed a very precious piece of information. I didn't even know such a kind of disease exists. I'd love to read more on treatment and prognosis part.
