ASTM F1357 Articulating Total Wrist Implant Testing

The Applied Technical Services Family of Companies (FoC) evaluates the functionality of total wrist implants in accordance with the ASTM F1357 articulating total wrist implant testing standard. Total wrist implants offer much-needed solutions to patients who experience chronic wrist pain from injuries, infections, or chronic conditions. Total wrist implant prototypes undergo extensive evaluations to ensure their ability to mimic the complex motions within the wrist joints. Our medical device testing facilities conduct ASTM F1357-compliant services that aid the development of wrist implants.
