With our tests of medical devices we not only withstand the real test world, but also the virtual test simulation. For the optimization of products, especially the simulation accompanying the design is a real added value. We have expanded our many years of experience and accreditations by the ASTM F2996 (hip stem) and ASTM F3161 (femur component) in accredited form. This has enabled us to expand our simulation test scope by "The definitions of worst-case geometries". This not only saves time but also costs for the approval of products. [...]
