1). The normal force in this test is equal to the gravity force of the weight. 1) Gu et al. [23] used ozone to pretreat a Pellethane® surface and later functionalized the surface with polyacrylic acid. 1. A modified COF measurement method for testing finished catheters was reported by Kazmierska [24]. 2. A motor winds the strand and pulls the catheter against a weighted surface in a water bath. The friction force is measured by a forcemeter and the normal force is the difference of gravity force of the weight subtracted by the buoyancy force.

Reprinted with permission from Ref. [137]. 7 Hemocompatability measurement Polyurethane medical devices such as central venous catheters (CVCs) [139–141] and hemodialysis devices [142–144] require good hemocompatibility [145]. 6, we know that when a device is implanted in the human body protein adsorption occurs in just a few seconds. In contact with blood, the protein layer interacts with platelets, which leads to thrombus formation and eventually to device failure. There are several tests available to evaluate hemocompatability.

1)). 1 are considered lubricous materials. COF depends on the nature of the materials and surface roughness. Usually, ASTM D1894-14 is the most widely used method for COF measurement. This method involves a polymer sheet or film with a fixed weight on top. 1). The normal force in this test is equal to the gravity force of the weight. 1) Gu et al. [23] used ozone to pretreat a Pellethane® surface and later functionalized the surface with polyacrylic acid. 1.
