ASTM F2009: Standard Test Method for Determining the Axial Disassembly Force of Taper Connections of Modular Prostheses
ISO 7206-10: Determination of resistance to static load of modular femoral heads
These tests are performed to establish the force required to disassemble taper connections of modular prosthesis. The standard ASTM F2009 is applicable amongst others for partial or total hip or shoulder prostheses (there is an upcoming ISO standard). ISO 7206-10 describes the method to establish the tension load to disassemble modular head systems.
