Dataset for "Screw tightness and stripping rates vary between biomechanical researchers and practicing orthopaedic surgeons"

Ten orthopaedic surgeons and ten researchers inserted 60 cortical screws each into artificial bone, for three different screw diameters, with half of the screws inserted through plates and half through washers. This dataset contains the raw measured screw insertion values for both surgeons and researchers; it includes calculated tightness and stripping rates. Confidence values are reported for each screw insertion.

Data collection method:

Ten orthopaedic surgeons and 10 researchers inserted 60 cortical screws each into artificial bone, for three different screw diameters (2.7, 3.5 and 4.5 mm), with 50% of screws inserted through plates and 50% through washers. Screw tightness, screw hole stripping rates and confidence in screw purchase were recorded. Three members of each group also inserted 30 screws using an augmented screwdriver, which indicated when optimum tightness was achieved.
