Project Description

  Figure 1: 3D model of the mandible.

  Figure 2: 3D model of edentulous maxilla restored with six anterior implants and resilient precision attachments placed distal to canines.

The objective of project is the development of a method to construct a three-dimensional finite element model of the dentulous mandibular body of a normal person. A series of pictures were got by CT scanning. After extracting the cordinates of keypoints of some pictures, we constructed a platform of the three-dimensional finite element model of the dentulous mandibulare body. The three-dimensional model is constructed with lifelike shapes of dental cusps. Each part of this model can be easily removed.

Evaluation of Human Locomotion Characteristics for Different Prostheses and Walking Speeds.
