||Background: Assess the reliability (by means of reproducibility and repeatability) of the PenguinRFA system, analyse the ISQ values of different implant types and correlate the ISQ with the insertion torque during the placement of the implant. Material and Methods: 120 rough surface implants were placed in bovine bone (type II and III). The implants were divided into groups, according to its design. Once the implants were in place, the exact insertion torque was registered. Then, primary stability was measured by means of the resonance frequency analysis with the PenguinRFA and the Osstell ISQ devices. In each implant two transducers of each device were used. Three measurements were obtained with each transducer. Results: The mean ISQ (implant stability quotient) of the whole sample is 67,70 ± 5,51. The Intraclass Correlation Coefficient (ICC) is 0,933 and 0,944 for transducers 1 and 2 respectively. The reproducibility is 0,906. The mean insertion torque is 24,54 ± 8,96N. The correlation between the ISQ and the insertion torque is 0,507 p < 0,000 (MultiPeg 1) and 0,468 p < 0,000 (MultiPeg 2) for bone type II and 0,533 p < 0,801 (MultiPeg 1) and 0,193 p < 0,140 (MultiPeg 2) for bone type III|
