The paper presents a method of study and the steps to obtain the virtual tibial component of the human knee joint prosthesis. For that purpose, CAD parametric software was used which allows the construction of a high definition model. The obtained 3D model was studied using the finite element method and the stress and displacements distribution was obtained for different solicitations of the prosthetic and non-prosthetic tibial component of the virtual knee joint.
