Biomechanical Testing

We characterize the material and mechanical properties of both biological materials and biomaterials through a number of materials analyses. SwRI-developed in situ microscopy testing systems provide high-fidelity imaging of specimens while undergoing controlled deformation to study the micromechanical behavior of biological tissue. Our facilities are available to isolate and characterize the spatial distribution of implant wear as well as the resulting particulate.
