IMPLANTABLE DEVICES

Implantable devices take many forms from cardiovascular, endovascular, neurovascular stenting and associated delivery systems to heart valves and pacemakers, through to auditory and ocular implants, such as intraocular or contact lenses. Mechanical testing takes many forms, from static tensile or compressive testing of the constituent metals and alloys, compression or flexural testing of complete devices, through to fatigue of stent materials and dynamic simulation of pressure pulsation.

BIOMATERIALS AND TISSUE ENGINEERING

The study of novel biomaterials and tissue-engineered products remains at the forefront of research around the world. Hard tissues such as bone, dentin, and enamel; soft tissues such as tendons, ligaments, skin, muscles, and arteries; and scaffolds such as hydrogels are all examples of tissue engineered materials or biomaterials. These materials require mechanical testing often in an environment to mimic physiological conditions to understand and characterize force and displacement properties. Mechanical testing of biomaterials typically entails a multitude of tests that include: monotonic tension, compression, or flexure tests, simple cyclic tests, creep, stress-relaxation, and dynamic fatigue tests.

2710-100 Series Screw Side-Action Grips

Screw side-action grips provide a very simple and efficient method for holding test specimens in a wide range of applications. The dual - acting design of 2710-100 series grips means that jaw faces can be adjusted to accommodate different specimen thicknesses. This ensures that the line of tensile force remains concentric with the grip body. They can be equipped with a selection of interchangeable grip jaw faces in various sizes and choice of surfaces including smooth ground, rubber-coated and serrated. Line contact and special coated faces are also available. The unique ‘snap-on’ jaw face attachment makes changing faces extremely quick and simple.
