Specification for Metal Femoral Components
Specifies basic descriptions and device geometries of total knee replacements. Various tests are listed in this specification to assess performance including contact area and contact pressure testing. This test examines the area and magnitude of stresses applied between the femoral component and tibial insert of a total knee replacement at various flexion angles through mapping on pressure films. In conjunction with this test, clients consider testing according to: ASTM F1800, ASTM F2777, ASTM F732, ISO 14243, ASTM F748, ASTM F1044, ASTM F1147, ASTM F1160 and ASTM F1223.
