This International Standard specifies test methods for components and assemblies of hip disarticulation prostheses
which are arranged at hip and thigh level. It does not apply to other components of lower limb prostheses for which
test methods are given in ISO 10328.
This International Standard specifies procedures for simplified static and cyclic strength tests in which the anteroposterior
(A-P) and medio-lateral (M-L) components of loading are produced in separate tests by the application of
test forces in two different test planes. The components of loading produced in the test sample relate to the peak
values of the components of loading which normally occur at different instants during the stance phase of walking.
