ASTM F3574-22
Standard Test Methods for Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Devices
1.1 These test methods cover the materials and methods for the static and dynamic testing of sacroiliac joint (SIJ) fusion device assemblies, SIJ implants designed to promote arthrodesis at the sacroiliac joint.

1.2 These test methods are intended to provide a basis for the mechanical comparison among past, present, and future nonbiologic SIJ fusion device assemblies. These test methods allow for comparison of SIJ fusion device assemblies intended to be implanted with a trajectory in line with the joint space (in-line implant) or for comparison of SIJ fusion devices intended for implantation across the joint space (transverse implant). These test methods are intended enable the user to compare SIJ fusion device assemblies mechanically and do not purport to provide performance standards for SIJ fusion device assemblies.

1.3 These tests describe static and dynamic tests by specifying force types and specific methods of applying these forces. These tests are designed to allow for the comparative evaluation of SIJ device assemblies.

1.4 Guidelines are established for measuring displacements, determining the yield force or moment, and evaluating the stiffness and strength of the SIJ fusion device assemblies.

1.5 Some SIJ fusion device assemblies may not be testable in all test configurations.
