Wear Simulation

Evaluation of the wear performance of an artificial joint is based on the experimental simulation of the physiological kinematics. Therefore, the lab is running several servo-hydraulic simulators for different type of joints that cover boundary conditions requested by the ISO or ASTM standard but also permit special setups for individual testing exceeding the limits of the standards.
