Test Standards for Direct Skeletal Fixation Failsafe Devices: Report on Workshop Aug 2020

A report on the recent Workshop on Test Standards for DSF Failsafe Devices is now available for download here.

The workshop, co-convened by Professor Peter Lee, Director, ARC CMIT, and Professor Sir Saeed Zahedi, Technical Director at Blatchford, arose as a consequence of discussions at the 2019 ISPO UK Annual Scientific Meeting where it was recognised that there is ambiguity between the testing of the implant failsafe mechanism and the structural testing of prosthetics.
