Abstract

The purpose of the project presented in this paper consists in the development of a multifunctional knee device to be used in the early stages of treatment of osteoarthritis. Magnetically controlled vascosupplimentation therapy is a new concept of bioactive treatment, which combines the advantages of intra- Articular therapy assisted by a more complex system of fixing and controlling joint mobility. Several positions and dimensions of magnets on two different knee positions (flexion/extension) were analysed and optimised using finite elements analysis software, in order to create a magnetic field able to localize and concentrate the nanoparticles for drugs delivery.
