HOW IT WORKS
  1. A test profile was set and the loads monitored and fed back into the test machine to control the loads.
  2. The output of the 6-Axis sensor was connected to the Model BX8 Data Acquisition / Amplifier which was connected via USB cable to the PC.
  3. Software in the PC converted raw data signals to actual force and torque values at the ball joint.
  4. The customer analyzed the data and made the required design modifications to improve the durability of the artificial hip joint.
