Abstract

A testing protocol that combines the photoelastic coating technique with computer imaging and computation to provide a continuous, quantitative analysis of surface strain is presented. The new techniques have been statistically verified and were used to make preliminary surface strain comparisons between intact femora and femora implanted with four different cementless stem designs. The protocol could prove useful for making definitive comparisons between intact and implanted surface strain distributions.
