ORL Brochure

The safety and effectiveness of contemporary total hip replacement systems relies on laboratory evaluation of the stability, structural integrity and durability of these devices. ORL has more than two decades of experience performing static and fatigue evaluations of both acetabular and femoral stem constructs. Beyond having the expertise to perform the below standards, ORL is the historical reference for many of them and has been providing data to regulatory agencies since their development.
