Modeling Complex Stump -Prosthesis with Graphical User Interface
MetadataShow full item record
The Graphical User Interface applied in biomechanical processes modeling can be found at the interface of two fields: biology and mathematics. The stumpprosthesis is the interface between the human and technology. Discomfort at the level of the prosthetic sockets continues to be a critical challenge for both prosthesis designers and amputees. The quality and comfort of the prosthetic socket determines the daily usage time of artificial limbs. Graphical user interface analysis of the complex prosthetic socket system will likely continue in the future. In this article, we propose a solution for modelling the stump-prosthesis system, which may improve the design of the prosthesis socket, resulting in a better quality of life for the patients. The first objective of this study was to design a graphical user interface (GUI) of the stumpprosthesis system, using MATLAB. Interface was entirely developed using MATLAB 7.3.0 .The proposed (GUI) contains all the screen menus, symbols, work areas and application windows, as well as graphic devices used in the interaction with a computer, icons, buttons and dialogue boxes. The user interface was designed to allow an intuitive interactive display. Finally, the data is exported to COSMOS Works suite for the actual design of the prosthesis. The objective of this paper is, to discuss the limitations of (GUI) investigations, and to speculate on work made possible through advances in domain of stump-prosthesis and computer software. These results are important and can provide a direction for future research.
