We address the use of magnetic fields, forces, and materials for medical purposes. In particular, the treatment of osteochondral lesions is aimed for. To support ongoing activities in this field of research, last advances in using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for the simulation of relevant processes, like magnetic targeting and magnetic fixation are reported. The availability of advanced multiphysics FEA software gives rise to a comprehensive description of such complex scenarios both for in-vitro experiments and in- vivo applications.
