Abstract

Design of a blade runner an integral part of Biomedical Engineering also engrosses the skill and art of Mechanical Engineering applications in order to have best possible effect. In general it is an application for the leg amputated (surgically removed) individuals to replace their below-knee part with a runner blade. It is designed to mimic the action of the anatomical foot/ankle joint of able-bodied runners and help compensate for the user’s impaired bodily processes. This paper deals with the design, modeling and analysis of 3D model using Solid Works/CATIA V5 and extensive use of Finite Element Model through Solver (ANSYS V 14.0) to perform analysis. Further Stress concentration and deformation values are obtained and modified for the optimal efficiency.
