ISO 7206-12: Implants for surgery - Partial and total hip joint prostheses - Part 12: Deformation test method for acetabular shells

The acetabular shell is subjected to diametrically opposite two-point loading. In order to determine short-term deformation, measurements of diameter in loading direction (in a defined measurement plane) are carried out prior and while loading as well as after unloading.
