Abstract

The necessity for the knee prosthesis is confirmed by the large increase in the number of patients suffering from arthrosis, which is a present-day disease. Despite this need, there doesn’t exist an optimal knee prosthesis. Nowadays the development of the knee prostheses is progressing. It is very difficult to define the required geometry with traditional methods, because the movement conditions to be created by the prostheses should be similar to the movements of the human knee. During previous research the biomechanical research team of the Szent István University occupied with experimental measurements of the healthy human knee joint movement. In this paper I would like to introduce a method of prosthesis geometry development. As a result, a knee prosthesis geometry has been created which is approaching the movement form of the real human knee joint.
