ASTM F 384 (F-384) covers specifications and test methods for angled devices used in the surgical internal fixation of the skeletal system. The test method establishes a uniform cantilever bending fatigue test to characterize and compare the fatigue performance of different angled device designs. This standard establishes consistent methods to classify and define the geometric and performance characteristics of angled devices. This standard also presents a catalog of standard specifications that specify material, labeling, and handling requirements, and standard test methods for measuring performance related mechanical characteristics determined to be important to the in vivo performance of angled devices. Related Standards: ASTM F382.
