Implants for surgery -- Wear of total intervertebral spinal disc prostheses -- Part 1: Loading and displacement parameters for wear testing and corresponding environmental conditions for test
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2016. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 18192-1:2011 defines a test procedure for the relative angular movement between articulating components, and specifies the pattern of the applied force, speed and duration of testing, sample configuration and test environment for use for the wear testing of total intervertebral spinal disc prostheses.
Both lumbar and cervical prostheses are addressed.
