Check the latest Journal of Rehab. Res. & Development (July, Vol 33, No. 3),
there are a number of articles on this very subject. In addition you will
probably be able to acquire some good keywords for further search efforts.
Good luck.

Check out the book by Peter Walker. I don't remember the title but it's
something like Human joints and their artificial replacements.
