Tibial Insert Endurance and Performance Under High Flexion
Test method describing fatigue testing of tibial inserts at high-flexion angles of the femoral component. Five TKR samples are tested for 220,000 cycles or until failure. Pre- and post-test analysis of material deformation and damage are performed using a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM). Inserts shall be artificially aged according to ASTM F2003.
