Quality Assurance & Testing
In our newest expansion to the Caplex platform, we provide the hardware and software you need to accomplish your product testing objectives. Mechanically testing prototypes before testing them on human subjects is a crucial step in safety-first R&D, and it’s an essential function for quality assurance of products already on the market. While you might be curious about emulation, you also need product testing, and Caplex can help you to achieve both— easier, quicker, and with more flexibility than ever before!
TES-001 ISO 10328-Style Prosthetic Foot Testing Rig
The TES-001 is a prosthetic foot testing rig designed in accordance with the industry standard ISO 10328:2016 test method for structural testing of lower-limb prostheses.This system provides instrumented force-controlled heel and keel loading across the full range of P levels and cyclic load frequencies described in the standard. Force is controlled by our off-board Full-Sized Actuator Units (Single-Axis or Multi-Axis) and Control System. The rig is instrumented with load cells (for measurement of heel and keel loads) as well as string potentiometers (for measurement of displacements). Therefore, not only can the TES-001 be used to perform structural testing, it can also characterize the force-deflection characteristics of prosthetic feet for benchmarking, emulation, and beyond.
