Mechanics and Strength of Biomaterials


This presentation will introduce a range of biomaterials test applications where mechanical test instruments are assisting researchers and engineers in gaining a better understanding of native and artificial tissues. Tissue characterization often leverages test techniques designed to measure quasi-static and dynamic properties of human or animal model tissues. These measurements can be used to evaluate drug-, hormone- or age-related changes in tissues such as bone, cartilage, tendon, ligament, vessels, eyes and heart valves. These properties can also be used as baseline or reference data for medical device development.
