The overall aim of the research is to develop a complex 3D model used in orthopedics of human elbow.
SolidWorks allowed us to obtain a “unification” solid used to analyze the kinematics of bone components.

Using the computer in medical engineering is leading to an improvement in the creation of shapes, as it enables three-dimensional view of future products, before they can be manufactured. There are several ways of representing and modeling objects (graphical representation) in a computer, namely:
The proposed model defines the structure and association of elements (components) in a system, by specifying the interfaces (links) of elements with the outside. Combination of elements is made along the links through unions (relationships).

|What is you overall assessment of the technical feasibility of the research result?Care este evaluarea generală a fezabilităţii tehnice pentru rezultatul CD?|
|Formulation and development of biomechanical models, theoretical and applied, for human elbow dynamics is based on two types of behavior: biological and mechanical. Thus, the biological models include dedicated elements to simulate more realistic the features and response of systems studied under the action of external stimuli.
From the mechanical point of view, it was outlined within the models the elastic-type elements, which enable outlining facilitates the mechanical movement with all their specific characteristics.The models presented are based on visco-elastic type mechanical elements, with specific parameter values taken from the biological features.
