FR Recognition Number 11-392
ASTM  F2723-21
Standard Test Method for Evaluating Mobile Bearing Knee Tibial Baseplate/Bearing Resistance to Dynamic Disassociation
1.1 This test method describes a laboratory method for evaluating the potential for mobile bearing knee tibial baseplate/bearing disassociation under repeated forces.

1.2 The test described is applicable to any bicompartmental mobile bearing knee with a bearing retention mechanism. With modification, the test can be applied to a unicompartmental mobile bearing knee with a bearing retention mechanism.

1.3 Although the methodology described does not replicate all physiological force conditions, it is a means of in-vitro comparison of mobile bearing knee designs and the strength of the bearing retention mechanism between the tibial baseplate and bearing components under the stated test conditions.
