The first steps to the development of the knee prosthesis rating method

M. Csizmadia Béla, Balassa Gábor Péter, Katona Gábor


During prosthesis implantation, the surgeon can choose from replacements of a wide variety of manufacturers and sizes. So far, no specific coefficient has been introduced that determines the suitability, or goodness of these prostheses. In this paper an apparatus is presented for the qualification of knee prostheses. This apparatus is able to measure the rotation of any prosthesis, therefore the obtained results can be compared with the measured values on human cadaver knees. The prostheses are classified by the rate of their conformity. In addition, the first experimental results are reported as well.
