The present study describes the lubrication mechanisms within artificial hip joints considering real conformity of rubbing surfaces. Part I is focused on hard-on-soft material combination, introducing the fundamentals of lubrication performance. These pairs have not been explored in terms of in situ observation before. The contact of metal femoral component articulating with transparent polymer acetabular cup was studied using a hip joint simulator. The film formation was evaluated by… CONTINUE READING
