Abstract


Integration of technologies such as medical imaging, types of software such as pro engineer, and modern fabrication processes such as RP is important in the medical field. It enabled to solve some medical problems specially those considering bio-parts replacement and prosthesis. This study presents a methodology that helped replace the wearied hip joint by a bio-product with the same dimensions, size, and shape as the patient’s hip joint using CAD system and a Rapid Prototyping technique.
