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

Femoral head torsion test
ISO 7206-9 and ISO 7206-13
Artificial hip joints must withstand both compressive loads and torsion loads. To determine optimal materials and alloys, these are tested with a special testing machine.

Spinal implants
ISO 12189-8, ASTM F1717 and ASTM F2706
In addition to purely axial tensile, compression and flexure tests, a pure or combined torsion load can be applied to spinal systems in compliance with standards including ASTM F1717-9, ASTM F2706-8 or ISO 12189-08.
