Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This work is aimed at developing an innovative simulation environment supporting and improving the design of standard joint implants (JPD integrated design environment (JIDE)). The conceptual workflow starts from the design of a new implant, by using conventional CAD programmes and completes with the generation of a report that summarises the goodness for a new implant against a database of human bone anatomies. For each dataset in the database, the JPD application calculates a set of quantitative indicators that will support the designer in the evaluation of its design on a statistical basis. The resulting system is thus directed to prostheses manufacturers and addresses a market segment that appears to have a steady growth in the future.
