Elfick, Alistair P. D. and Smith, Simon L. and Green, Sarah M. and Unsworth, Anthony (2001) The quantitative assessment of UHMWPE wear debris produced in hip simulator testing: the influence of head material and roughness, motion and loading.

Biomaterial wear particles are known to provoke a foreign-body reaction when released from total joint prostheses. Considerable effort is being invested in the search for materials which, by wearing less, will release fewer particles. In this research the role of joint wear simulators is paramount.
