In the present, the design of ACL is attracting more attention. In this work, three different braided artificial ligaments were manufactured and tested under a cyclic stress to simulate the actual normal conditions. Knee simulator tester was designed to simulate the actual knee movement during the application of load on ACL. A comparison between three different braided artificial ligaments was analyzed after subjecting the ligament to 50,000 cycles using the designed knee tester, and compered with the results obtained on tension-tension fatigue tester. The tensile properties of the samples, after applying cyclic loading, were tested to study the effect of ACL structure design.
