This paper contains the presentation of a virtual environment which allows rapid design and verification of human prostheses. Initially the platform was created for inferior limb prostheses, but it is usable for any kind of prostheses. The system enables a virtual testing of the prosthetic models, control systems, sensors and a comparison between the real prosthesis and the virtual one. In a virtual environment, we can perform tests on larger sets of configurations, in a very short time and at a very low cost.
