Biomechanical testing and evaluation
The Biomaterial Research Cluster has equipment and competence in biomechanical testing of materials as well as biologic structure.
A servo-hydraulic testing biaxial machine (MTS) and an electrical uniaxial testing machine (Instron, 10 kN) are available.
The picture shows dynamic (cyclic) testing of a spine fixation system. The procedure is based on an ISO standard.
