Simulate Facet joint

Hi AnyBody,
Facet joints are established in the two models "FacetJointModel" and "SpineFixationWithForceDepKinematics". I want to know which of these two facet joints is closer to the real Facet Joint? Are there other ways to simulate facet joints besides these two methods?
Thanks and
Best regards,

Hi @Shaotian

The "FacetJointModel" is a coarse method, but a good place to start. When you have a sound model then you can try the other approach from the "SpineFixation" model that requires FDK and a very good kinematics of the model.

You can probably find other ways of doing it but for now we only have examples of these two methods.

Best regards,
