Medical Devices – Mechanical wear testing

We have been working with Prosim in the medical devices industry since 2001 and have sold orthopedic joint wear testing simulators to a number of leading implant manufacturers across Europe.

Harnessing this knowledge of the industry as well as our significant experience in robotics, we have partnered with Cleveland Clinic and Kuka Robotics to deliver the SimVITRO Robotic Universal Musculoskeletal Simulators suite of products in Europe.

Prosim

Simulation Solutions are the exclusive European partner for the supply and support of the Prosim range of mechanical wear testing machinery.
From the initial design and development of the first Prosim mechanical wear testing simulators in the early 1990’s, for DePuy Synthes, Prosim has sought to take a flexible, innovative and cost-effective approach to the development of mechanical wear simulation for the testing of orthopaedic implants.

Our long association with Prosim means that Simulation Solutions is able to offer a complete suite of mechanical wear testing simulators for the wear testing of hip, knee and spinal implants, as well as other orthopaedic implants such as ankles, fingers, elbows and shoulder joints.

If you have any specific requirements not fully addressed by the above range of simulators, please do not hesitate to contact us as we are always happy to look at customisation of existing equipment or design and build projects to a customer’s specification.

Please see the Prosim page for more technical information.

SimVITRO

Simulation Solutions has partnered with Cleveland Clinic Medical Device Solutions, a centre of excellence for biomechanical testing of biological structures and biomaterials, to deliver simVITRO software, hardware (biomechanical testing machines) and services in Europe.

The simVITRO Robotic Universal Musculoskeletal Simulators are designed to combine the accuracy, repeatability and ubiquity of a standard KUKA robot with simVITRO software that provides a biomechanics centric control interface that allows researchers to focus less on the robotics and more on the important thing: Asking and answering clinical questions that will help patients.
