IMA Dresden is now able to test ankle joint implants
IMA Dresden has done its first wear test for ankle joint implants in accordance with ISO 22622:2019 and thus expanded the test portfolio in the field of medical devices at the same time. The implants have to withstand five million cycles in level walking load profile.
The ankle implants are tested in the wear simulator, which has two four-station test benches. Two standard wear tests can be conducted simultaneously, i.e. three wear couplings plus one loaded reference coupling each. The IMA wear simulator can run in displacement and force control mode depending on test requirements.
We are proud of our engineers in the department of medical device testing and thank Marcel Langner, Robert Paul, Frank Gatzke and Sebastian Fuchs for the realization of the project.
