simVITRO is a hardware neutral joint testing system born out of the BioRobotics and Mechanical Testing Core of Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute.
In most academic research centers, research fellows are typically charged with building and integrating their own robots for each new project. In 2005 the Cleveland Clinic took a different approach. In an effort to have a center of excellence and establish long term sustainability, Cleveland Clinic assembled the simVITRO team to provide robotic services for a variety of biomechanical research programs. Rather than reinventing the wheel with each investigation, the team developed the capabilities to build and optimize robots that can handle any joint, any load, and any range of motion. In addition, the system was built to be hardware agnostic, giving it the flexibility to enhance any existing robot infrastructure depending on the needs of the investigator.
Due to the collective desire from centers from all over the world to modernize and enhance biomechanical research, simVITRO’s capabilities were first offered outside of Cleveland Clinic in 2014. The following year, we launched a partnership with Simulation Solutions, to distribute and integrate simVITRO to European institutions. These efforts and demonstrated success of simVITRO continues to attract new customers from all over the world.
