Static & Fatigue Testing

Our static and fatigue programs puts your orthopaedic implants through a series of rigorous tests to characterize the mechanical strength of your design, coating, or material. Static and fatigue tests are designed to push your implants to their limits, allowing you to gather data for research, product development, and regulatory submissions. When standard tests are not suitable, our expert team can work with you to modify or design tests specific to your implant design and application.

Using supporting analytical capabilities we track the stresses and strains on your implants so you can see the areas where failures begin.  With real time analysis we provide visuals of the failures in action, along with the supporting data and interpretation.  These advanced analyses help to inform future R&D as well as being used in regulatory support of your current implants.

If you are looking to:

  • Simulate and evaluate the static & fatigue loading performance of your new orthopaedic implants
  • Compare a new design with an existing one
  • Outsource your orthopaedic implant static & fatigue testing to accelerate new product developments and avoid in-house delays
  • Find a supplier that can provide a comprehensive service and the full suite of information you require for your regulatory submission
  • Visualize the areas of your implant that take the main force of stresses and strains
  • Understand failure mechanisms…

…then we can help.

These are some of the standardized tests that we perform, and we also do testing for other joints too, and testing beyond the standards:
