This is applied to the Ti surface in an electrochemical process that results in: 1. lm 2. The retention of the open-cell structure of the Ti coating 3. A mechanically strong bond, which is necessary to cope with the stresses applied on the coating during implantation translation [27]. The position of the instantaneous axis of rotation (IAR) point is not constant, and changes depending on the joint position. This important aspect of spinal biomechanics is replicated in the functional motion of the SB Charite, due to its three-component set-up, which incorporates a floating sliding core, whose convex surfaces are encased in the concave cavities of the metal endplates (Fig.
