Abstract

Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is a deformity of spine which occurs during growth. This paper presents a novel method for simulation of a 2D and 3D trunk model and the adaptation of an existing parallel mechanism to design parallel joints that can be used to correct abnormal postures of the human spine affected by scoliosis. A 3D model of the system has been elaborated for simulation and design. Simulations results show that this mechanism is able to permit some bending motions of human torso, taking into account the specifications of forward, backward and left/right sideways bending amplitudes.
