VCOT 3/2016

Muskuloskeletal models are a valuable tool in human orthopaedics research, providing us with a better understanding of the forces acting upon the musculoskeletal system, and making it possible to develop further insights into the onset and progression of various orthopaedic conditions as well as allowing us to better plan orthopaedic operations. Only recently however has interest developed in utilizing computer modeling for research into the canine musculoskeletal system. Though many of the human models and techniques can be applied for use in the canine, not all are applicable. In this issue of VCOT, Billy Dries and colleagues discuss the various parameters necessary for modelling, as well as thte techniques from human models, and the limitations in transferring these to canine modelling research.
