In vitro pure moment spine tests are commonly used to analyse surgical implants in cadaveric models. Most of the tests are performed at room temperature. However, some new dynamic instrumentation devices and soft tissues show temperature-dependent material properties. Therefore, the aim of this study is to develop a new test rig, which allows applying pure moments on lumbar spine specimens in a vapour-filled chamber at body temperature. As no direct sight is given in the vapour-filled closed chamber, a magnetic tracking (MT) system with implantable receivers was used. Four human cadaveric lumbar spines (L2-L5) were tested in a vapour atmosphere at body temperature with a native and rigid instrumented group. In conclusion, the experimental set-up allows vertebral motion tracking of multiple functional spinal units (FSUs) in a moisture environment at body temperature.
