ANSYS in ACTION: Designing Hip Stems with ASTM Standard F2996
As the number of total hip replacement surgeries has exploded over the past few decades, regulatory agencies have expressed concerns over the difficulty of comparing different finite element analysis (FEA) methods used by medical device companies to evaluate the safety of implant designs. In response, ASTM International released the F2996 standard, which provides a consistent method for analyzing hip stems used in replacement surgery. ANSYS has developed a free app that guides engineers through the process of analyzing hip implants in accordance with this standard. Attend this 20-minute session to learn how the new ANSYS app reduces the time required for hip implant simulation while ensuring that engineers correctly apply the new standard.
