Research Facts
This titanium alloy was originally developed for the aircraft industry; the cup would have been used with a polyethylene insert; the holes were used to screw into the acetabulum when there was a concern about its stability; the hole at the bottom of the cup was used to make sure that the component had been hammered right against the bone; the rough exterior finish was for a better grip.

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.
