Direct skeletal attachments for transfemoral amputees have been the subject of clinical trials since the early nineties. This method of attachment allows the amputee an unrestricted range of motion around the hip joint, better sitting comfort, improved sensory feedback through osseoperception, improved limb control and reduced soft tissue problems. However,(More)
Pushout tests can be used to estimate the shear strength of the bone implant interface. Numerous such experimental studies have been published in the literature. Despite this researchers are still some way off with respect to the development of accurate numerical models to simulate implant stability. In the present work a specific experimental pushout study(More)
