Biomechanics and Orthopedics

Biomechanics involves the functions and structures of the musculoskeletal system and the movements of biological systems. Orthopedics involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, injuries, abnormalities, and functional disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Medical products that are tested include orthopedic implants, osteosynthetic implants, and prostheses, which support or replace physiological functions.

Important tests in the field of biomechanics and orthopedics

Hip implants

ISO 7206-4, ISO 7206-6, ISO 7206-8 and ASTM F2068
ZwickRoell's test fixtures can test to ISO 7206, ASTM F2068 for fatigue tests on hip endoprostheses.
