"IDEALLY, THE DESIGN AND MATERIALS of which an implant is fabricated should accomplish the defined clinical objective."
- ASTM Standard: Predicting the Life and Design Stresses of Medical Plastics Under Creep Conditions
"Polymers are finding increasing use in biomedical engineering applications. One of the major problems in designing with polymers is predicting when the material will fail and what stress values should be used in the design of components in order that the material will not fail prematurely."
