Finite element (FE) models have become an effective tool in studying soft tissue behavior in the knee joint, including meniscal translation and deformation, as well as articular cartilage contact [1–2]. These models are also useful in osteoarthritis research and implant design [3–4]. Our group has previously used a kinematic-driven FE analysis to study the effect of weightbearing on the load distribution of tibio-menisco-femoral contact using MR imaging [5].
