Dear all,

We would like to measure the pressure in the cement during insertion of a hip prosthesis. Does anyone have experience with this type of measurement? Even better: does anyone know of sensors available on the market for measuring cement pressure? For example some thin sensore that can be inserted through a small (e.g. 2-3 mm diameter) hole in the femoral shaft.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,
