Innovations in the industry have also proved to be quite impressive in the medical field, where another approach is needed due to the need for personalization. Due to femoral fractures, it is not just enough to stabilize the bone, but also to have the integration of the implant with the host bone. Thisresearch is intended to undertake studies on the redesign of the distal femoral plate. The redesign had been elaborated to increase the number of people who are compatible with this type of femoral plate and also, to improve the physico-mechanical and biological properties toward to a commercial distal femoral plate made of type 316L stainless steel. Within SolidWorks software, a static simulation has been run after there have been defined restraints, external loads, and a mesh. The parameters were similar to those after the implantation. Taking this reason into consideration, the final results will be improved by modifying plate’s material from 316L to titanium alloy Ti6Al7Nb to increase the capability and biocompatibility. Moreover, the geometry of the distal femoral plate changes to decrease theweight and time of osteosynthesis. The final implant is parametrized 3D models that handle all day-to-day activities and has a weight 50% lower than that of the commercial implant.
