PI-73: (WK51649) Standard Test Method for Fatigue Testing of Total Knee Femoral Components under Closing Conditions

This test procedure covers the fatigue test at femoral components. A single condyle loading at 90° tibiofemoral flexion is requested. Multiple femoral condyles are be tested at different load levels to determine the runout load. At the evaluated runout load, five femoral condyles must reach ten million cycles without failure.
