Research Facts
These cards reproduce the profile of human elbow bone; researchers measured real cadaveric elbow bones and recorded the measurements on these templates in order to develop an elbow replacement; the templates served as a tool for checking the design of the replacement; the profile of the bones of real elbows were taken at many different angles and recorded in these templates; each template is labelled with the angle of the reading.
