Status: active
Page Count: 16
ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics): 11.040.40
scope:

This part of ISO 7206 specifies a test method for determining short-term deformation of a press-fit acetabular component for total hip joint replacement under specific laboratory conditions. It also defines the conditions of testing so that the important parameters that affect the components are taken into account and it describes how the specimen is set up for testing. Furthermore, this part of ISO 7206 specifies the test parameters of press-fit acetabular components tested in accordance with this part of ISO 7206.

The described method is intended to be used to evaluate the comparison of various designs and materials used for acetabular components in total hip joint replacement when tested under similar conditions.

The loading of the acetabular components in vivo will, in general, differ from the loading defined in this test method. The results obtained here cannot be used to directly predict in vivo performance.

This part of ISO 7206 does not cover methods of examining the test specimen.
