The goal of this project is to simulate reverse shoulder prostheses (RSA) to evaluate the variability of several biomechanical factors and the impact on the range of motion. In particular, we are interested in evaluating the effect of glenoid lateralization, humeral inclination and critical shoulder angle (CSA). These computer-assisted simulations will provide operating parameters which aim to minimize the onset of articular conflicts and luxations.

In this project, Artanim is responsible for dynamically simulating reverse shoulder prostheses from kinematic data.
