The Aalborg mandible

The Aalborg mandible#

This is a mandible model based on a CT scan of a 40 year old male.


The model was developed for two purposes:

  1. Demonstration of how to apply force-dependent kinematics (FDK) for modeling of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ)

  2. Validation of the predicted mandible kinematics with the FDK TMJ model and comparison to a simpler point-on-plane (POP) model.

You can read more about this model and the validation in [1]

The work was supported by the Sapere Aude program of the Danish Council for Independent Research under grant number: DFF‐4184‐00018.
