Description

The test rig in the video example is a custom built set-up that simulates human walking. It is used for analyzing implants for femur neck fractures (mainly nails and blades), and hip prostheses. The AnyBody model in the video example in the first scenario simulates the same load case as the in-vitro model and the acting forces and moments in the fracture plane (Intertrochanteric fracture) are illustrated. In the second model, muscles are included and forces are analyzed in the same manner. The inclusion of the muscles obviously changes the loading conditions on the fracture plane. The additional information provided by the AnyBody software can be used to either change the in-vitro loading or to interpret the results of the in-vitro tests. References: The applied loading is taken from www.orthoload.com. The rig is built and located at the University of Applied Sciences, Regensburg, Germany.
