ASTM F382 Testing

Metallic Bone Plates are pieces of metal used along with bone screws to stabilize and hold fractured pieces of bone in the proper position, allowing for the proper healing, recovery, and restoration of bone function. Commonly used alloys include biocompatible metals like cobalt-chromium, 316L stainless steel, and titanium.

ASTM F382, in particular, is concerned with testing methods for Metallic Bone Plates. It is primarily designed to help determine the maximum force the Metallic Bone Plate can withstand, as well as its endurance and resistance to bending and deformation over time. This testing standard defines both the geometric and performance characteristics of Metallic Bone Plates, using both static and fatigue test methods.

There are two types of ASTM F382 metallic bone plate testing used for Metallic Bone Plates, as follows:
Single Cycle Bend Testing of Metallic Bone Plates
Bending Fatigue Properties of Metallic Bone Plates

At Empirical Technologies, we use the latest testing devices and advanced methodologies to record precise, accurate, and comprehensive results when testing Metallic Bone Plates. Our team of testing specialists is the best in the business, and we have been providing expert medical testing services for more than 20 years.
