ASTM F1714 Gravimetric Wear Assessment of Prosthetic Hip Design in Simulator Device Testing

The Applied Technical Services Family of Companies (FoC) evaluates prosthetic hip designs to ensure compliance with ASTM F1714. Hip replacement surgery is a common procedure where medical professionals replace damaged and worn parts of a patient’s hip with new, artificial components. The ATS FoC evaluates the functionality and efficacy of prosthetic hip designs to ensure the product complies with standards and regulations.
ASTM F1714 Gravimetric Wear Assessment of Prosthetic Hip Design in Simulator Device Testing
The American Society for Testing and Materials established ASTM F1714 as a guideline for technicians using a weight-loss method to evaluate the wear properties of hip-joint replacement prostheses. During the procedure, technicians use a machine to simulate the conditions and movements associated with the human hip joints. Technicians introduce fluids such as pseudo synovial fluid or bovine serum to the hip prosthesis to mimic the natural movement and wear within the hip. The procedure’s results provide insight into which combinations of implant materials and designs perform best under specific conditions.
