PROBLEM

The hip joint prostheses available in the national market needs to be regulated in terms of durability, with wear resistance being one of these characteristics. The early return of patients to the surgical procedure to replace the prostheses due to excessive wear of the acetabular component is a common occurrence.

SOLUTION

The present invention describes an affordable and feasible assembly apparatus that performs wear tests on hip joint prosthesis. It uses a simplified mechanical technology that contributes to its technical-financial viability. Thus, the use of this equipment can make access to wear tests more comprehensive, classifying the prostheses as to their quality and benefiting patients, avoiding the disorders of return to surgery due to premature wear of the acetabular component.
