Abstract

Prosthetic hip joint dislocation phenomenon is generated by the hip joint simulator and the effect of the femoral head diameter is studied under the same condition which is similar to the condition in daily activities. Impedance control is applied to control the hip joint motion and the joint contact force simultaneously in order to take into account the constraint caused by surrounding tendons, muscles, and a joint capsule of the hip joint. The experimental results show that the hip joint dislocation phenomenon is generated by the simulator and the obtained results about the effect of the femoral head size agree with those of the other research.
