Title: TEMPORO-MANDIBULAR JOINT PROSTHESIS
Abstract:
A temporo-mandibular joint prosthesis comprising: a first part (6) for attaching to a temporal bone (2); a second part (8) for attaching to a mandible bone (4); and a mechanism (12) linking the first part and the second part. The mechanism defines a range of motion of the first part relative to the second part for when the first and second parts are attached to a temporal bone and a mandible bone, respectively. The mechanism includes a rotary joint (14) providing a rotational range of motion of the first part relative to the second part; and a first slider joint (22) providing a first translational range of motion of the first part relative to the second part.
