Standards Testing - Knee

For more than four decades, ORL is recognized as an innovator of testing standards and methods with an extensive track record of providing information necessary for successful regulatory approvals, product quality confirmation, marketing materials and surgeon education. This Standards listing encapsulates the breadth of this expertise.

ASTM F1223 - Standard Test Method for Determination of Total Knee Replacement Constraint

This test method quantifies total knee replacement motion characteristics delineated by the inherent articular design as determined under specific loading conditions.

ASTM F1672 - Standard Specification for Resurfacing Patellar Prosthesis

This specification provides basic descriptions and characteristics of material and device geometry for patellar resurfacing devices that have been determined to be important to in-vivo performance.

ASTM F1800 - Standard Practice for Cyclic Fatigue Testing of Metal Tibial Tray Components of Total Knee Joint Replacements

This practice covers a procedure for the fatigue testing of metallic tibial trays used in knee joint replacements using a cyclic, constant-amplitude force.

ASTM F1814 - Standard Guide for Evaluating Modular Hip and Knee Joint Components

This guide assists the developer of a modular joint replacement implant in the choice of appropriate tests and evaluations to determine device safety.

ASTM F2083 - Standard Specification for Knee Replacement Prosthesis

This specification is intended to provide basic descriptions of material and prosthesis geometry for primary and revision total knee replacement devices. Additionally, those characteristics determined to be important toin vivoperformance of the prosthesis are defined.

ISO 14879-1 - Implants for surgery — Total knee-joint prostheses — Part 1: Determination of endurance properties of knee tibial trays

This part specifies a test method for determining the endurance properties of tibial trays used in knee-joint prostheses to support and secure the plastic articulating surface.
