Medical Implants

Injecting biomaterials into a spinal cord injury site provides significantly improved healing and this type of treatment is pragmatic for spinal injury patients.

A developer of hydrogel based products used as implants for spine and vascular purposes asked Alliance Technologies to determine the product’s dimensional stability and the effects of in-patient use.

The client provided hydrogel samples and the Mechanical Testing Protocol for image analysis. Alliance Technologies provided individual and composite images with detailed measurements of several areas of the product’s embedded and surface features. The results of the data showed the average strength for designated portions of the disk.
