ASTM WK80208

Revision of F2009-20 Standard Test Method for Determining the Axial Disassembly Force of Taper Connections of Modular Prostheses


The standard is being revised to 1) remove the Drop Weight assembly method from the main body of the standard, 2) remove the option for force-controlled taper disassembly, 3) align the standard with BS ISO 7206-10, and 4) provide more context for other taper assembly methods being used outside the scope of this standard (within the Appendix).
