Few materials testing systems are able to measure low capacity and small displacement movements on samples that can often be difficult to hold. Furthermore, many researchers have a need to record microscopic material behavior while the sample is subjected to forces. In this article, three examples that demonstrate how the Microtester was deployed in the market are featured.LISTED UNDER: Data Acquisition | Measurement Instruments | Product-Safety/Performance Testing
Medical device engineers rely on an array of testing instruments and equipment to verify the safety and efficacy of their products. An axial-torsion testing system is just one of them; however, it has a variety of indications across various device sectors. This article looks at two products for which this testing instrument is invaluable.LISTED UNDER: Other Testing Instruments | Product-Safety/Performance Testing
Regardless of the indication, the technology, or the manufacturing process, all medical devices face thorough testing regimens to ensure they function as designed. There’s no room for error with any medical device, whether a low-tech orthopedic knee brace or a life saving pacemaker. The patient relying on the device they are using needs it to work perfectly.LISTED UNDER: Analyzers | Camera | Catheter Testing Equipment

In 2008, a team of academic researchers shook up the connected medical device community by presenting a paper at an IEEE Symposium, which outlined a potential attack on implanted cardiac devices through the wireless interface. While this initially raised some concern, it was not until Jay Radcliffe demonstrated a potential attack through the wireless interface of a patient-worn insulin pump that awareness of medical device security issues “exploded,” prompting a U.S. Government Accountability Office inquiry into medical device security issues, and a media blitz that continues to this day.LISTED UNDER: Analyzers | Other Testing Instruments | Product-Safety/Performance Testing
