Validation of New Anybody Mandible Model
(Associate Professor Michael Skipper Andersen, Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, Aalborf University, 4th Feb 2016)
Abstract: In this webcast, we will present our recently developed detailed musculoskeletal model of the mandible. To model the temporomandibular joint, we investigated two different approaches: 1) a previously published point-on-plane model and 2) a Force-dependent Kinematics (FDK) model that take into account the detailed joint surface and the properties of the surrounding ligaments. To evaluate the accuracy of the models, a custom brace was manufactured to enable measurements of the detailed joint kinematics to validate the model predictions.
