Abstract

Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is performed to replace all or part of a human hip joint with an artificial joint for patients who have rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis of the hip joint. Although THA might result in postoperative complications of dislocation, wear and/or loose, their mechanisms have not been analyzed enough. We have developed an artificial-hip-joint simulator that can generate the same joint posture and joint contact force as those in daily life motion in order to evaluate the performance of the artificial-hip-joint. Dislocation of the artificial-hip-joint during daily living activities was generated by the simulator in order to analyze its mechanism.
