The "Standardised Femur" model

Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The standardized femur is the 3D surface model of a femoral bone analogue (mod. #3103) produced by Pacific Research Labs (Vashon Island, Washington, USA) which was for a long while the "de facto" standard in experimental orthopaedic biomechanics.
Much experimental data based on this bone analogue are available in the literature; we proposed to adopt this geometry as a reference for orthopaedic biomechanics finite element studies.
