Contribution à la modélisation du membre résiduel des personnes amputées de membre inférieur pour la conception personnalisée de l’emboiture fémorale

Abstract : The socket connects the prosthesis to the residual limb of the amputee. For transfemoral amputations, it must allow the transfer of mechanical actions while being conformable. However, its design remains mainly qualitative. The pressures at the socket/residual limb interface can be evaluated using the Finite Element (FE) method. However, the design of such models is a challenge for both the reconstruction of geometries, the characterization of tissue behavior and the definition of loadings. This work presents a personalized FE model of the interaction of the residual limb and the socket. Measurements for the characterization of the tissue behavior but also for the definition of loadings, using a musculoskeletal model, supply the EF model. This model was compared with the literature and then used to estimate the influence of certain parameters on the pressures.
