Joint motion simulators (JMS’s) have been developed for many applications enabling the repeatable testing of prostheses, scientific investigations of joint mechanics and the study of surgical procedures.[1–4] Although Morrey has reported that radial head implants have lower post-operative satisfaction than other joint implants and Dunning has examined several issues with radial heads, many problems remain. It is therefore beneficial to develop a simulator capable of evaluating radial head implants. A robust simulator can also provide the ability to test soft tissue strains at the elbow and compare control schemes that may elucidate the body’s means of controlling multiaxial multimuscle systems.
