Abstract

A servohydraulic hip simulator was upgraded to experimentally investigate cadaveric impingement/dislocation of the hip with clinically releveant joint motions. The resulting biomechanical analysis provided insight into risk factors for dislocation/impingement and clearly demonstrated the potential of the hip simulator as a research tool.
