Fatigue and Durability of Medical Devices


Durability testing of Medical Devices is crucial for validation of performance and safety and often becomes an important element of regulatory submissions. As such, devices undergo a range of extensive fatigue characterization to support lifetime predictions for the design, optimization and approval for safe and life-changing device solutions. A variety of common standards-based test methods will be presented including example or published test data for each.
