The Silicone Rubber Coated Fiberglass Fabric Reinforced Epoxy in The Currently Available Design (2)

In general, the new SGFR bones were significantly less stiff than the FFR bones, although both bone designs reasonably approximated the structural stiffnesses of natural human bones. With the exceptions of the FFR bone axial tests, the highest variability between specimens was 6.1%. The new SGFR bones had similar variability in structural properties when compared to the FFR bones under bending and torsional loading, but had significantly less variability under axial loading.

Differences in epiphyseal geometry between the silicone rubber coated fiberglass fabric reinforced (FFR) and SGFR bones, and subsequent seating in the testing fixtures, may account for some of the differences in structural properties; axial stiffness was especially dependent on bone alignment. Stiffness variabilities for the composite replicate bones were much smaller than those seen with natural human bones. Axial strain distribution along the proximal-medial SGFR femur had a similar shape to what was observed on natural human femurs by other investigators, but was considerably less stiff in the more proximal locations.
