Abstract

A numerical simulation model for observing the artificial hip joint movement with respect to the range of motion during human activities is presented in this paper. There were two human activities discussed, i.e. Western-style and Japanese-style. Previous investigation has reported the range of motion on the artificial hip joint for Western-style and Japanese-style, measured from the postoperative total hip arthroplasty patients. The aim of this investigation is to observe the probability of prosthetic impingement and to calculate the von Mises stress during these activities using finite element analysis (FEA). The Western-style activities consist of picking up, getting up and sitting, while the Japanese-style activities consist of sitting on legs with fully flexed at the knee (seiza), squatting and sitting on legs with fully flexed at the knee (zarei). The FEA uses a three-dimensional nonlinear model and considers the variation of the acetabular liner cup positions. Result shows that a prosthetic impingement is found in the Western’s picking up activity. This activity induces a prosthetic impingement in a certain the acetabular liner cup position. In the Japanese-style activities there is no prosthetic impingement observed. However, a critical value in the range of motion was observed for the Japanese’s Zarei activity for certain the acetabular liner cup position. The acetabular liner cup positions influences the probability of prosthetic impingeme
