Orthopedic Plates for Tibia Fracture Stabilization

Individual Undergraduate Project

Initial Sketch & Final CAD Rendering

Solidworks Prototype of the plates – The design is a simple plate with 7 main pins to stabilize the fracture and 2 other small pins placed adjacent to each other for extra security.

Engineering Simulations to Analyze Mechanism and Iterations – Shown are the some simulations from studying how the plates interact with a makeshift tibia with an oblique fracture. The biomechanics are studied to analyze the results.

Skills – Solidworks (CAD), Simulation, Prototyping, Data Analysis, CFD, Biomechanics

Done at UT Arlington, TX under Dr Chuong and TA Supervision
