The test method may be used to evaluate and compare acetabular prostheses to assess the relative degree of constraint for the prosthesis and the damage tolerance under controlled laboratory conditions.
It is recognized that there are several clinical failure modes for acetabular prostheses and that this test method may or may not be capable of reproducing them.View Less
1.1 This test method covers a procedure for measuring the range of motion, impingement, and dislocation of a femoral head assembly and acetabular prosthesis.
1.2 This test method covers the procedure for static and cyclic fatigue tests.
1.3 This test method may be used to evaluate single piece acetabular prostheses, modular prostheses, and constrained prostheses manufactured from polymeric, metallic, or ceramic materials.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are regarded as the standard.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
