Abstract

The conventional prosthesis designs of fixed artificial legs are simple in construction. It consist of two basic parts a socket which connects residual leg with another part of artificial leg. They only provide support to the leg but they do not fully anticipate in the movement of the leg due to the fixed nature of leg and creates discomfort to the user. There is a need for design a new prosthesis leg with knee and ankle joints to perform movements and provide comfort to the user. This paper demonstrates the CAD Model, FE Model, FE Results of modified prosthetic leg.
