The procedure for the 'Torsional Spring Method' from the internationally recognized standard on measuring induced torque on medical implants, ASTM F2213-17, leaves out information regarding the calibrating and quantifying of the spring constant which is crucial for its use in calculating torque. This abstract is a proposed method for the purpose of calibrating a torsion balance to enhance the utility of this internationally recognized test standard.
