Surgical Technologies covers the development, design, testing and analysis of implants, surgical instruments and medical devices. In cooperation with our industrial partners and leading research clinics, we develop new implants and test procedures. Thereby, we count on most modern laboratory infrastructure (current testing machines and industrial robots) as well as functional simulators developed in-house.
The laboratory has ISO 17025 Type C accreditation for the development of test procedures for endoprostheses, implants & traumatology products.
For analysis, we have a wide range of measurement technologies as force sensors, strain gauges, acceleration sensors and digital image correlation
Robot-based experimental in vitro studies to evaluate two surgical techniques for a meniscal lesion with respect to knee kinematics
In this project, the following hypotheses will be investigated with experimental robot-based in vitro tests on human leg specimens: 1) Ramp lesion of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus leads to increased anterior translation and rotational instability in a knee with an ACL rupture. 2) In a knee with an ACL ...
