Design of a Machine to Test Knee Joint Prosthesis

The knee joint is one of the most important joints in the human body. In this paper is presented the development of a machine which simulates the principal movements of the human leg through a mechanism cinematically and tructurally analyzed using ANSYS Workbench. The machine has four degrees of freedom and is designed to support 155 lb and analyzed the wear of a knee joint prosthesis.
