To follow ASTM F2516-14, the Advanced Video Extensometer allows for accurate strain measurement of Nitinol wire for biomedical uses without common failures.
ASTM F2267 advises on in vitro axial-compression tests to compare fusion implants used in spinal intervertebral body fusion devices.
While observing ASTM F2606, use a three-point bend fixture and an element to minimize friction in testing the flexibility of balloon expandable vascular stents.
After orthopedic reconstructive surgery, metallic bone plates need to help the bone heal while supporting the bone segments, and flexural fatigue testing is needed.
The Bluehill Expression builder can create custom calculations with compression testing safety helmets to meet EN 397 standards on performance and testing methods.
Many soft tissues, such as skin or collagen, are delicate specimens with low ultimate strength values and require a testing system to be highly sensitive to low-force measurements and small displacements.
Instron's micro indentation head allows for in vitro micro indentation tests on bones to determine the stress and strain placed on the hard tissue from larger loadings.
Orthopedic micro-implants used to treat bone problems and soft tissue injuries need to be tested in simulated loading conditions to prevent failure.
With different frequencies and consistent displacement amplitude, damper durability tests are performed on automobile components to calculate peak force.
To find the best absorption levels for the soles of athletic shoes, the 8516 testing machine measures the impulse and fatigue damping behavior of the footwear.
An ElectroPuls E3000 has been used to compress sports balls in order to understand the effect of the internal pressure over and under recommendation.
Stent grafts reduce the chance of risk in treating aneurysms, and their radial force can be tested to minimize movement with a RX675.
