US project to study implant wear resistance:
This article was originally published in Clinica
The US National Institute of Standards and Technology plans to set up a co-operative research consortium to develop new technology to evaluate wear resistance of implant materials. Organisations interested in providing resources to the development of methods to accelerate the evaluation of wear resistance of orthopaedic hip and knee implant materials are invited to attend a meeting at NIST in Gaithersburg, Maryland, on July 6th, 1995.
