why personalized models
Why Personalized Models?
  • “One size fits none” - everyone is different!
  • Increases objectivity in treatment planning (different clinicians may plan different treatments given same patient data).
  • Can facilitate identification of previously unknown treatments (e.g., modified gait to treat knee OA).
  • May permit identification of best treatment option for a specific patient.
  • May permit identification of sensitive treatment parameters (i.e., which parameter values do clinicians need to “get right”?)
highly variable outcomes
Highly Variable Outcomes

For some treatments, standard deviation in outcome is bigger than the effect size.

Where problems are

too complex for models

Where models

should be focused

Scope of model applicability must be properly defined.

high fidelity anatomic shoulder elbow model


Frans C.T. van der Helm, Ph.D., Delft

delft shoulder and elbow model
Delft Shoulder and Elbow Model
  • High fidelity anatomic musculoskeletal model constructed from extensive measurements performed on a single cadaver specimen.
  • Model accounts for more variables (including sarcomere length) than any other upper extremity model.
  • Model validation: Muscle forces cannot be measured, so no strict validation!
  • The same model personalization approach cannot be performed on living patients.
model applications
Model Applications

possible uses of gait analysis
Possible Uses of Gait Analysis
  • Assessment – Assess after treatment how the treatment worked for a group of patients. (Common)
  • Identification – Identify on an individual patient basis which patients should be treated (but not how they should be treated). (Becoming more common)
  • Prediction – Predict on an individual patient basis which treatment should be performed and how it should be performed (where personalized models may help). (Does not yet happen)
  • The potential value of Prediction depends on the clinical problem at hand.
clinical example for prediction
Clinical Example for Prediction
  • Clinical Situation:Oncological patients who receive a limb salvage procedure.
  • Problem: How to get the bone allograft to heal – it needs load to repair but not so much that it breaks.
  • Observation: Each case is unique – surgical and rehabilitation design are not stereotypical.
  • Proposed solution: Treatment design using gait and imaging data in a personalized musculoskeletal model that estimates muscle & bone loads.
  • Challenge: How to gain confidence in patient-specific predictions of muscle & bone loads?

patient specific musculoskeletal models


Bart Koopman, Ph.D. and Herman van der Kooij, Ph.D., Enschede

model personalization
Model Personalization
  • Problem: Most musculoskeletal models are generic, and uniform scaling is inaccurate.
  • Solution: Scale/deform a generic parametric model to match each patient.
    • Image based scaling of bone geometry (CT, MRI)
    • Functional kinematic scaling of joint positions/orientations (marker-based motion, laser scans, inertial sensors)
    • Functional dynamic scaling of muscle strength (dynamometers)
  • Challenge: Fusion of data from different modalities.
model utilization
Model Utilization
  • Collect pre-treatment imaging, kinematic, and dynamic data.
  • Simulate surgical scenarios and parameters.
  • Select scenario and parameters that optimize post-treatment outcome.
  • Implement plan in surgical navigation system.
  • Validate model predictions using surgical cases not planned with model.
  • Example: Which tendon to transfer to restore hip abduction strength in patients with Trendelenburg gait?
neuro mechanical models
Neuro-Mechanical Models
  • How do people interact with and adapt to their environments (e.g., with robotic systems)?
  • Visual, proprioceptive, and vestibular feedback all play a role.
  • No simulation tools currently exist to optimize human-machine interactions in rehabilitation devices.
research goal
Research Goal

Multiscale personalized human musculoskeletal models that enable:

  • Early detection of balance abnormalities.
  • Design of innovative devices for prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.
  • Identification of the source of pathology (e.g., is it muscular or skeletal?).
  • Quantitative assessment of treatment strategies.

Remote monitoring and Remotely supervised training & treatment

HermieHermens, PhD, Enschede

remote health care vision
Remote Health Care Vision
  • Goal: Create new health care services by combining biomedical engineering with information and communication technology.
  • “Enabling monitoring and treatment of subjects anywhere, anytime and intervene when needed.”
  • Remote monitoring – Remote measurement of vital biosignals without interfering with daily activities.
  • Remotely supervised training & treatment – monitoring + feedback that enable a patient to train when and where convenient and with the same quality of training as in a clinical environment.
  • Remote Monitoring
    • Less intramural care (costs)
    • More freedom for patient
    • Peace of mind
  • Remotely Supervised Treatment
    • High intensity training possible (more = better)
    • Training in natural environment translates to more effective training
    • Puts patient in driver seat
    • Clinician can ‘treat’ several patients at the same time
  • Main challenges are technological feasibility and clinical/patient acceptance.
example tele treatment of chronic back pain
Example: Tele-Treatment of Chronic Back Pain
  • Studies report a change in activity level due to chronic back pain.
  • Clinical study: 29 chronic back pain patients and 20 asymptomatic controls
  • Activity levels monitored for 7 consecutive days using an 3D inertial motion sensor
  • Overall activity levels the same but activity patterns different between groups.
  • Will normalization of activity patterns through feedback improve outcome? (Clinical trial running)
example tele treatment of neck shoulder pain
Example: Tele-Treatment of Neck/Shoulder Pain
  • Chronic shoulder/neck pain typically shows no clear physiological overloading.
  • Solution: Design a remote feedback system to warn patients when insufficient relaxation occurs.
  • Muscle relaxation assessed via surface EMG with real-time feedback provided to patient and therapist.
  • 100 patients treated in Belgium, Germany, Sweden, and the Netherlands
  • Outcome as good as classic treatment
  • Approach appreciated by patients and therapists
