Prosthetic limbs must be tested for extreme loading that can occur during falls, accidents, and sports movements. Fatigue testing of prosthetic components determines the expected lifespan of the components under normal usage for consumers who need them.
A static load test apparatus uses SSMF Fatigue Rated S-type Load Cell attached to hydraulic actuators to apply and measure loads. A fatigue testing machine uses SSMF Fatigue Rated S-type Load Cell to apply and measure cyclic loads.
Engineers determine whether prosthetic materials and designs will withstand the rigors of daily use and occasional highload situations.
