Orthopedic Device Testing

Orthopedic Programs Designed, Performed, and Interpreted by Experts

Orthopedic devices are generally solid implants or absorbent materials that interface with bone to replace diseased joints, stabilize fractures or osteotomies, and/or stimulate healing. Our experienced staff will consult with you to design an appropriate testing program, taking into account the nature of the device, its component materials, and its intended use.

Preclinical testing for dental implants, devices, and materials is often 
similar to that for orthopedic implants. In addition, one must consider 
factors unique to the oral cavity including exposure to saliva and the 
motion and forces of mastication.
