Aim. Develop an algorithm for the investigation of lower limb (LL) on the basis of constant segmented bone reference points. Material and Methods. The study was performed on non-fixed corpses of 2 women and 6 men. The hip and shin are conventionally divided by 10% in length, and the knee joint area by 33% strictly parallel. The length of the LL is the distance from the clearly palpable large trochanter of the femur to the apex of the lateral ankle. The proximal landmark in determining the length of the tibia is the line drawn from the fibula to the point on the inner surface of the medial condyle of the tibia. The line connecting the centers of the proximal and distal boundaries was the integral length of the tibia, which allows us to take into account both the length of tibia and fibula. The proximal landmark is the line connecting the epicondyle of the femur. On the hip, a distal reference point was used to connect the epicondyle of the femur. Results and Discussion. The proximal lateral reference point of the femur length is the apex of the large trochanter of the femur, from which the line parallel to the linea interepycondylaris femoris is medially drawn. Thus, new methodological approaches have been developed, proposed and introduced in the selection of constant anthropometric points, a rational sequence of LL measurements has been tested. Conclusions. The developed algorithm is created at the junction of 3D modeling and printing technologies taking into account the functional biomotorics of LL.
