Osteosynthesis Device Testing

We can help with osteosynthesis device testing

OIC offers a broad range of static, dynamic, and computational testing services for fracture fixation and osteosynthesis devices. All of our test procedures follow international test standards as described below.

If a non-standard test is needed, our engineering team will develop and incorporate modifications to suit your specific device and data needs.

Having a strong foundation in clinical research provides you with the additional value of a clinically-relevant test procedure. We pride ourselves on the ability to meet a customer’s specific needs with a wholly unique, tailored solution.

Test Methods for External Skeletal Fixation Devices

Identifies several test methods for testing both individual components, such as external fixator connectors and skeletal fixator joints, subassemblies such as ring elements, and full external fixation devices.
Test Methods for Intramedullary Fixation Devices   Describes four standard test methods: static four-point bend, static torsion, bending fatigue test, bending fatigue test for locking screws. Not all tests outlined in this standard are applicable/required, but based on the intent of the device, certain tests may be applied to evaluate different strength characteristics required for in vivo efficacy.
Fretting Corrosion of Plates and Screws

Describes the method to determine material loss due to cyclic fretting corrosion between screw head and plate hole countersink junctions of devices used for osteosynthesis. Mass loss of the plates and screws and chemical analysis of the solutions are evaluated to determine the amount of fretting corrosion that occurred.
Test Methods for Metallic Bone Screws

Describes numerous test methods for metallic bone screws including: torsional strength, breaking angle, axial pullout strength, insertion torque, removal torque and measurement of self-tapping force. Depending on the application of the screw, certain tests may be applied to evaluate different strength characteristics required for in vivo efficacy.
Test Method for Metallic Angled Devices used in Internal Fixation of Skeletal System   Describes a test method specifying mechanical tests of metallic angled devices important to in vivo performance, such as, single cycle compression bending and bending fatigue methods. Depending on the application of the angled device, certain tests may be applied to evaluate different strength characteristics required for in vivo efficacy.
Test Method for Metallic Bone Plates   Describes single cycle bending test and fatigue test methods of metallic bone plates. Depending on the application of the bone plate, certain tests may be applied to evaluate different strength characteristics required for in vivo efficacy.
