Artificial Limb Testing Machines
Si-Plan Electronics Research has developed machines to test lower limb and foot prostheses to ISO 10328. The Double sided test machine, Single sided test machine andDesktop machine are marketed directly by Si-Plan Electronics Research Ltd. Prosthetic feet and lower limbs can be tested to the requirements of the European Medical Devices Directives for CE marking of prostheses.
The accompanying, specially written software package runs the test machines to the requirements of ISO 10328. Using the Si-Plan Servo Controller and Data Acquisition system with Block Programming, the programs incorporate control options, graphic displays of the progress of the test with extensive data collection and storage.
The test machines use the Servo-pneumatic Actuator designed and built by Si-Plan Electronics Research. Controlled by easy-to-use software, load and displacement waveforms are displayed and logged for each loading module. When the test parameters have been programmed, machines can run unattended until testing is complete.
