German term or phrase: Femurkollektiv - Comment
As far as I can tell, Femurkollektiv refers to a single bone ?model?, thus a design model (Berechnungsmodel) could be prepared using CAT data. In any case, it does not refer to various cases or patients. Basis dieser Berechnungsmodelle bildete ein statistisch repräsentatives Femurkollektiv (Abb. 2), welches über CT-Datensätze zu FE-Berechnungsmodellen transformiert werden konnte.

composite femur


Explanation:
I beg to differ.
Yes, "Femur" is a bone, the thigh bone.
No, I read "Femurkollektiv", in this context, as a femur composed from different sources, i.e. some kind of "aveage femur" composed from a collection of femurs.

Explanation:
the Femurkollektiv is a composite femur that has been designed based on femurs collected from a representative group of individuals.

See link for biomechanical experiment using femurs collected from 100 9-year olds and 100 14-year olds. A 'computational model' (and NOT design model) is then made from the analysis of the properties of the various femurs:
