Design and construct a custom anatomical lower body skeletal model for use in a clubfoot research project with the following characteristics/tasks:
- Scale adult medical image data to fit a 5 year old male anatomy.
- Customize hip and knee joint shape to allow for normal anatomical movement (rotation, flexion/extension, adduction/abduction).
- Blend two models (normal pelvis/femur/tibia/fibula medical image data with existing data from Ponseti training model*) to obtain a realistic clubfoot anatomy.
- Design a fixture matching the pelvis anatomy to fixate the model to a frame of reference
|STL model with true anatomical shape from pelvis to toes specified for Fused Deposition Modeling with ABS resin, including:
