Cushion form bearings for total knee joint replacement. Part 1: Design,friction and lubrication.

Abstract

Cushion knee prostheses have been designed and constructed that produce approximately equal initial contact areas and theoretical film thicknesses compared with a conventional UHMWPE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) joint. These compliant bearings had a flat tibial component which imposed fewer biomechanical constraints and allowed a greater range… (More)
