Abstract

Usage of Stewart Platform in orthopedics is a challenging task because there are numerous parameters, some of which are obtained from X-ray images, involved in mathematical computations for treatment process. Therefore, a computer program is required to ensure an accurate treatment and this program needs feature a graphical user interface so that the clinician can interact with the input in a convenient way and check the effects of parameter changes on the output effectively. In this work, a graphical user interface is proposed which requires less human intervention compared to similar, commercially available systems in use today. A simulation model, which is a part of the program, allows the clinician to visualize the entire treatment process.
