Implants for surgery -- Partial and total hip-joint prostheses -- Part 10: Determination of resistance to static load of modular femoral heads
This document specifies methods of determining the compressive (fracture) or the tension (disassembly) loads required, under specific laboratory conditions, to cause failure of a modular head system.
This document applies to components made of metallic and non-metallic materials, such as femoral heads of partial or total hip-joint replacements of modular construction (i.e. a head/neck conical taper connection).
This document excludes methods of examining and reporting the test specimens.
