ASTM F1717 Testing of Spinal Constructs, Static, Fatigue, Torsion
Spinal implant assemblies are designed to provide some stability to the spine while arthrodesis takes place. The mechanical f7117 are conducted in vitro using simplified load schemes and do not attempt to mimic the complex loads of the spine. The ElectroPulsTM E is a state-of-the-art, all-electric test instrument designed for dynamic and static testing on a wide range of materials and components.
The maximum recommended frequency for this type of cyclic testing should be 5 Hz.
By means of our orthopaedic testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the testing solution that is right for you. The test materials for most combinations of spinal implant components can be specific, depending on the intended spinal location and intended method of application to the spine.
The 55MT MicroTorsion system can be used when multiple revolutions are required. Static and fatigue forces up to 25 kN 5, lbf Frequency ratings up to Hz Servohydraulic Small, portable footprint. Spinal Fixtures ASTM Atm – CP During normal patient activity, aztm constructs can be subjected to high in vivo loading that can result in catastrophic failure.
These test methods are not intended to define levels of performance, since sufficient knowledge is not available to predict the consequences of the use of a particular device. We propose to revise F in order to describe the anatomical worst case condition we found at L1 level: We offer machines, apparatus, testers, tensile grips, test fixtures, clamps, holders, jigs, faces, jaws, extensometers, environmental and humidity chambers, furnaces, baths and custom solutions for unique applications.
They allow comparison of spinal implant constructs with different intended spinal locations and methods of application to the spine. Contact Us View Accessories Catalog. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Install the anchors according to the manufacturer. Spinal injuries often occur due to rotation, dislocation, bending, and axial loading. The American Society for Testing and Materials reapproved F standard for the assessment of mechanical properties of posterior spinal fixators, which simulates a vertebrectomy model and recommends mimicking vertebral bodies using polyethylene blocks.
ASTM F – 18 Standard Test Methods for Spinal Implant Constructs in a Vertebrectomy Model
Additionally fatigue tests are employed to quantify the static and dynamic mechanical characteristics of different designs of spinal implant assemblies.
WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing. How can we help you? Other mechanical variables, describing implant design were considered, and all parameters were investigated using a numerical parametric finite element model.
Simple static testing is able to evaluate the asmt required to result in spinal fracture.
The worst-case combination of parameters demonstrates that devices implanted below T5 could potentially undergo higher stresses than those described in the standard suggestions maximum increase of The results obtained here cannot be used directly to predict in vivo performance. The standard asttm represents quite well the anatomy of an instrumented average thoracolumbar segment. Service astj testing of spinal constructs is critical as fatigue failure is more common than catastrophic failure.
Email addresses must contain the symbol. These test methods outline standard materials and methods for the evaluation of different spinal implant assemblies so that comparison between different designs may be facilitated.

Loading is typically applied with a constant-amplitude, load-controlled sinusoidal waveform, running in excess of five million cycles. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
They allow f17177 of spinal implant constructs with different intended spinal locations and methods of application to the spine. Preclinical evaluation of spinal implants is a necessary step to ensure their reliability and safety before implantation.
Methods for three static load types and one fatigue test are defined for the comparative evaluation of spinal implant assemblies.
