The acetabular liner of an artificial hip joint (AHJ) is easily damaged locally in case of contact impingement, i.e. in case of contact of the liner wall with the stem neck, especially when it is made from relatively soft material such as ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). Frequent contact impingement will severely damage the acetabular liner, requiring replacement of the AHJ. The aim of this study is to reduce AHJ contact impingement for specific combinations of flexion, internal rotation, and adduction of the thigh, by optimizing the design of the AHJ. The presented new design is based on modifying a conventional AHJ into a bipolar version with a higher free range of motion (RoM). Results show that the proposed design is able to prevent contact impingement for RoM. The latter range of motion corresponds well with the requirements of Shalat.
