Abstract: This thesis investigated a bipolar induction screw system with an integrated coil for bone electrical stimulation. The aim was to analyse the influence of the stimulation parameters and electro-stimulating implants parameters on bone regeneration and carry out a parameter optimization for bone electrical stimulation. Finite element analysis was used to calculate the electric field distributions in the bone. The results showed that the screw’s z-direction positioning (moving in and out of femoral head) yields the highest effect on the volume tissue activated in patient’s femoral head model.
