Implications of Variability in Total Hip Replacement Wear Testing
The field of tribology as it pertains to wear simulation in Total Hip Replacement systems contains several factors for variability in reported wear rates. Download this free paper to continue reading.
This white paper will detail:
- Two types of wear test simulators are most commonly used in wear testing of hip replacement systems: bi-axial rocking motion machines and multi-axial machines
- The maximum and minimum forces applied to a device during cyclic loading impact its wear rate over time
- ASTM and ISO test protocols are similar but each method has variations that potentially change the outcome of any wear test
