Orthopedic Wear Testing
Services offered include:
- Long-term wear tests are performed using AMTI hip and knee simulators. Hip and knee implants are most commonly tested, but the machines may also be adapted for use with other types of implants, depending on the component design, loading and range of motion requirements.
All tests are carefully monitored and follow written protocols developed with and approved by the sponsoring company. Detailed test reports suitable for inclusion in regulatory submissions are provided. Wear debris analysis and challenging wear conditions can be incorporated into the testing program. Scanning electron microscopy of tested specimens can also be performed when required.
