Dataset for "Stripping torques in human bone can be reliably predicted prior to screw insertion with optimum tightness being found between 70% and 80% of the maximum"

Despite being the most commonly used orthopaedic implant, screws are frequently inserted poorly. This data is for the study where screw, bone and screw hole characteristics, were used to predict the maximum torque for a screw hole prior to insertion. Using this, optimum tightness as a percentage of the maximum torque is investigated as functions of compression and pullout forces in human bone. This data set provides the raw data for these investigations. The methodology is described in detail in the related manuscript, "Stripping torques in human bone can be reliably predicted prior to screw insertion with optimum tightness being found between 70% and 80% of the maximum".
