Fatigue and Durability of Medical Devices

Medical Devices Webinar Series | 3 of 6

Durability tests are crucial for ensuring medical devices’ safety, performance, and compliance with regulations. Before saving or improving lives, medical devices must undergo extensive fatigue tests to confirm their reliability and predict their lifetime. Innovative medical devices are optimized and approved based on fatigue tests. For every material and design, there is an appropriate durability test to verify its safety.

What You Will Learn:

  • Overview of medical device development and failure regimes
  • Specific examples from real fatigue tests on cardiovascular and dental implants
  • How to leverage multi-specimen fatigue testing to streamline your testing process
