ASTM F1829 Glenoid Locking Mechanism Shear Testing

The Applied Technical Services Family of Companies (FoC) evaluates total shoulder replacement (TSR) glenoid locking mechanisms in compliance with the ASTM F1829 glenoid locking mechanism shear testing standard. Total replacement surgery is a common procedure used to treat excessive soft tissue damage, bone fractures, and arthritis. Our medical device testing lab assists clients as they design, develop, and qualify their glenoid components for the marketplace.
The ASTM F1829 Glenoid Locking Mechanism Shear Testing Standard
The American Society for Testing and Materials developed ASTM F1829 as an outline for engineers evaluating a shoulder prostheses’ metal-backed glenoid prostheses mechanism. The standard addresses the process needed to measure the mechanism’s resistance to static shear loading. During the procedure, technicians apply a vertical load to the specimen and document the rate of loosening.
Why is Glenoid Locking Mechanism Testing Important?
Glenoid locking mechanisms are an essential aspect of shoulder joint replacements. They provide stability and prevent the glenoid component from dislodging or loosening over time. Testing the glenoid locking mechanism is crucial to ensure its proper function and longevity and avoid complications from its failure.
