ASTM F1714 Wear of Prosthetic Hip Designs
We suggest using our Dual-Station™ ASTM hip simulator, which incorporates the gravimetric method as per the ASTM standard. It provides an accurate and cost-effective solution for four degrees-of-freedom hip wear simulation and is offered as an accessory for the 8874 Axial-Torsional Testing System. The dual-station design also enables simultaneous testing of both specimens, a solution whose simplicity and flexibility is unmatched. Without dual-station capability, both specimens must either be tested in series, taking more than four months to complete a single test or occupy two testing systems in parallel.
The system applies physiologically accurate loads and motions in axial flexion-extension, abduction-adduction, and internal-external rotation on a test specimen maintained under in vivo conditions. You can enable easy system control through our user-friendly interfaces and fatigue software.
The 8874 is a versatile testing system that, in addition to the long-term wear simulation tests, can be easily reconfigured to accommodate a full range of other biomechanical tests.
