ASTM F2025 Wear Assessment of Polymeric Components

The Applied Technical Services Family of Companies (FoC) evaluates human joint prosthesis in accordance with the ASTM F2025 wear assessment of polymeric components testing standard.

What is ASTM F2025?
ASTM F2025 explains how to use a weight-loss method to evaluate the wear experienced by the polymeric components used in a human joint prosthesis. During the procedure, technicians apply serum or a similar lubricating liquid to the joint prosthesis before subjecting it to a predetermined load profile. The procedure simulates the tribological conditions of the human joint by creating conditions that mimic the wear mechanisms of the human hip. The progressive wear induced by the ASTM F2025 procedure removes polymeric debris from the device, resulting in weight loss of the specimen.
The Importance of Medical Device Testing
Medical devices are instruments, appliances, and implants used to prevent, diagnose, and treat chronic conditions, ailments, and injuries. These devices improve the quality of life for medical professionals and patients worldwide and are essential to modern healthcare. Medical devices undergo mandatory tests and evaluations to ensure their effectiveness and compliance with relevant regulations and standards. Failure to properly test a medical device will result in the device being ineligible for clinical use and a poorly designed device could put patients at risk.
