Research Facts
This hip prosthesis was designed by Sir John Charnley; it was the first of its kind of hip joint, with a (22 mm) smaller head designed for less wear on the socket; this type of prosthesis was originally used with Teflon sockets, 2/3 of which wore out within six months; these were replaced with high-density polyethylene sockets.

Research Facts
Bouton experimented in Paris, France in 1970 using ceramic for prostheses with alumina (aluminum oxide); zirconium oxide is very similar; many of the deposits are radioactive, so not useful for human implantation; zirconium from China has only background radiation, so can be used for this purpose; this type if implant was used in Kingston in 1998; this material is very hard and wears well; this sample was acquired by Dr. Sorbie in Lyons.
