ISO 12189:2008 Preview
Implants for surgery -- Mechanical testing of implantable spinal devices -- Fatigue test method for spinal implant assemblies using an anterior support
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2016. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 12189:2008 specifies methods for fatigue testing of spinal implant assemblies (for fusion or motion preservation) using an anterior support. It is intended to provide a basis for the assessment of intrinsic static and dynamic strength of spinal implants.
