Project Description

The goal of the SimOS project is to design a system to measure biomechanical  parameters of a knee prosthesis, in clinical field or during daily activity. This system will be constituted of partly implanted and partly external tools and could help the medical doctors during the surgery and the rehabilitation and increase the quality oflife of the patients.
