ASTM F2009 Modular Prostheses Taper Connection Testing

The Applied Technical Services Family of Companies (FoC) assesses modular tapers in accordance with ASTM F2009 modular prosthesis taper connection testing. Implants such as shoulder and hip replacements often require tapers to secure various components to the prosthesis. Our medical device testing lab conducts ASTM F2009 testing for manufacturers nationwide.
ASTM F2009 Modular Prostheses Taper Connection Testing
The American Society for Testing and Materials developed ASTM F2009 as the standard test method for evaluating the axial locking force of modular tapers, specifically modular hip, and shoulder prostheses. The test method outlines the standard methodology for determining the force required to disassemble an implant’s tapers. During the procedure, technicians apply axial tensile force to tapers and record the force needed to disengage the taper.
