To follow ASTM F2516, the Advanced Video Extensometer allows for accurate strain measurement of nitinol wire for biomedical uses without common failures.
Many soft tissues, such as skin or collagen, are delicate specimens with low ultimate strength values and require a testing system to be highly sensitive to low-force measurements and small displacements.
Instron's micro indentation head allows for in vitro micro indentation tests on bones to determine the stress and strain placed on the hard tissue from larger loadings.
Orthopedic micro-implants used to treat bone problems and soft tissue injuries need to be tested in simulated loading conditions to prevent failure.
Stent grafts reduce the chance of risk in treating aneurysms, and their radial force can be tested to minimize movement with a RX675.
