Materials such as metals and alloys, ceramics and polymers are used in the development of medical devices. Metallic implants used in the medical field have a regular and 3-dimensional crystal structure. They are produced especially for load-bearing purposes such as hip and shoulder implants and fixation devices. Ceramic material is commonly used in dental implants. They are non-metallic and organic, and although their compressive strength is high, they have poor tensile properties.

Polymers are organic materials. They are considered advantageous due to their controlled degradation rates and ease of production. It can also be given the desired shape for a specific application using polymer. However, when evaluated from a mechanical perspective, their negative aspects are that they have different deterioration mechanisms, show wear residues and fatigue under constant loading.

Medical devices go through many tests and controls before being used in the healthcare field. One of these studies is Biomechanical Tests. The ability of an implant to withstand tensile, compression, shear forces, variations and degrees of freedom, as well as the mechanical properties of the device such as elastic modulus, yield strength and elongation to failure, are checked within the scope of "Biomechanical Testing".

It is important to work with an expert team and competent laboratories to test and improve the quality and system performance of medical devices. As Nanolab Laboratories Group, we provide services for Biomechanical Tests on Medical Devices.
