The normative standard provides specific requirements for knee joint replacement implants. Amongst others, test services evaluating the dimensional properties (such as UHMWPE insert thickness, articular surface roughness and non-articular surface roughness) and physical properties (such as wear and tibial tray fatigue) are provided by EndoLab®.
