The aims of this work are i to establish an online platform to curate, distribute, and reuse data and models of multi-layer tissue structures of musculoskeletal extremities, ii to collect and disseminate anatomical and mechanical data for building and validating reference models, iii to build, validate, and disseminate mechanically advanced reference models representative of nonlinear material properties and realistic anatomy, and iv to build and evaluate fast and mechanically simplified yet visually and haptically realistic surrogate models to be used for surgical simulation. At the time when this report was written, a web based data management system was fully operational and the platform has been made available to general public in vivo testing data were published in vitro testing data publications were in review a growing number of models were built and calibrated, and are under consideration for dissemination and publication. The project continues to provide the foundations for development of authentic and individualized models for simulation of haptics of musculoskeletal extremities for training.
