In the always-evolving biomedical market, orthopedic researchers are continuously making improvements in orthopedic materials, implants and devices. Researchers need to ensure that the mechanical properties of orthopedic products are sufficient enough to withstand the stress, strain, force, motion and fatigue incurred by use in the body. The success of orthopedic products relies heavily on proper mechanical properties testing of the materials and devices to ensure the safety and soundness of the product.

Orthopedic research is important for developing new orthopedic devices and materials used in the fixation and replacement of bone. The more researchers know about the mechanical properties of bone the more successful the product. Research has been used to improve the design of hip, knee and spine replacements by testing the kinematics and full motion of the joints. TestResources offers machines and solutions for the testing of kinematic orthopedic materials and devices.
