Abstract

The paper presents the results of strength calculations of the structural form of a prototype device for the rehabilitation of the lower limbs. Developed structural form designed in Inventor has been imported into Ansys Workbench environment in which the was made the discretization of the geometry model and boundary conditions were set. The calculations were performed using the software package of finite element method ANSYS Workbench.
