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.

Research Facts
An engineer and two orthopedic surgeons first developed beads on metal in 1970; Howmedica developed a 400µ ball P.C.A. (porus-coated anatomic) system; the purpose of the beads is for bone to grow around the prosthesis after it is implanted; current examples of this type of prosthesis are cemented in place.
