Lecture scientific study/P&O contribution

A new 3-D biomechanical simulation approach for an evidence-based comfort assessment of prosthetic sockets

Short description

The study presents an imaging based Finite-Element (FE) analysis to assess the comfort of prosthetic sockets in daily use. A detailed model of the residual limb, with individual muscles and tendons, has been developed to simulate socket-tissue interaction and estimate realistic tissue deformation.
