State-of-the-art test rigs for medical device testing
When does material fatigue occur in hip, knee, elbow or vertebral implants? At IMA Dresden, ten testing machines are busy answering these questions. Only recently, they have been modernized to state-of-the-art. We retrofitted them to servo-hydraulic drive system and installed a new measuring and control system for optimized accuracy and improved process reliability.
As an accredited and recognized testing laboratory (DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018) for medical device testing, we support manufacturers, physicians and other experts in the field of approval testing, failure analysis as well as research and development of medical devices. The tests are carried out according to standard test methods, such as ISO 7206-2, -4, ASTM F1800 and ASTM F1875, or according to scientific publications for non-standardized methods.
With the adjustable crosshead, we are equipped to test a wide range of endoprosthesis sizes and different modularities. The fatigue tests can be run in force or displacement control mode depending on requirements.
