Implants for surgery -- Partial and total hip-joint prostheses -- Part 10: Determination of resistance to static load of modular femoral heads

This standard was last reviewed and confirmed* in 2014.

*Therefore this version remains current


ISO 7206-10:2003 applies to femoral heads of partial or total hip-joint replacements of modular construction (i.e. a head/neck conical taper connection) and describes methods of determining the load required, under specified laboratory conditions, to cause failure of the head (disassembly or fracture). It applies to components made of metallic and non-metallic materials.

ISO 7206-10:2003 does not cover methods of examining and reporting the test specimens.
