Welcome To Simulation Solutions

From the initial design and development of the first Prosim wear simulators in the early 1990’s, for DePuy Synthes, Simulation Solutions has sought to take a flexible, innovative and cost-effective approach to the development of mechanical wear simulation for the testing of orthopaedic implants.

Since the mid 1990’s Simulation Solutions has worked closely with Professor John Fisher’s team, at Leeds University, to design and develop a range of commercially available mechanical wear simulators that have enabled Leeds University to continually push the boundaries of research, in the study of orthopaedic implant wear, and build one of the largest independent wear testing laboratories in the world, with a capacity of over 100 wear stations for hip, knee and spinal implants.

The benefits of this relationship, stretching back nearly twenty years, have enabled Simulation Solutions to broaden its product offering and enter both mature and developing markets around the world often working with local customers in the design and development of new simulators to meet the needs of those markets. Leeds University continues to work side by side with some of Simulation Solutions’ customers, to provide them with a more structured Omega Replicas and rigorous approach to the running of their simulators and interpretation of the results generated.

From the early days Simulation Solutions was quick to enable its simulators to accommodate multiple demand profile changes, to simulate the activities of daily living, and accommodate significantly wider ranges of motion and higher ranges of loading than required under the respective ISO standards, to study fonts adverse wear. More recently, the focus has been on the mechanising of the process of micro-separation of hip implants, deep knee bending in knee implants and the study of friction.

Simulation Solutions is able to offer a complete suite of mechanical wear testing simulators for the wear testing of hip, knee and spinal implants, as well as other orthopaedic implants such as ankles replica watches , fingers, elbows and shoulder joints. If you have any specific requirements not fully addressed by the above range of simulators, please do not hesitate to contact us as we are always happy to look at customisation of existing equipment or design and build projects to a customer’s specification.
