What Orthopedic Device Testing Is
Orthopedic device testing determines the stability of a medical implant and its impact on surrounding bone. This type of testing must replicate how an orthopedic implant will mechanically load within the host’s musculoskeletal system.
These devices must be subject to stringent testing protocols. The type of testing they will undergo depends upon the specific device and how it functions.
Why Orthopedic Device Testing Is Vital
Orthopedic device testing is vital in ensuring that devices function safely and satisfactorily. Working with an experienced testing company gives clients the confidence that they have the proper documentation before submitting their orthopedic device for review.
Common Orthopedic Devices Include:
Types of Testing
Testing providers offer different types of mechanical testing methodologies for use with orthopedic devices. For example, reverse shoulder must undergo thorough loosening and fatigue testing, while the bone plates only need simple bending and pullout testing.
Another example is hip and knee implants. These devices require extensive testing since they replace larger, multifaceted joints. Different implants and components must undergo fatigue testing to verify that they can manage to ensure proper safety and efficiency.
Custom Testing
Testing companies can specify customized testing methods for the device under test. Since there are always an array of orthopedic devices in their developmental stages, it is critical that clients work with a fully equipped company ready to customize any test to find the correct solutions.
