Investigation and Exploitation on the Experiment Platform for the Medical Ni-Ti Memory Alloy Clutching Internal Fixator
How to choose instrument appropriately, especially in the process of fracture internal fixation healing, is always a Gordian knot. Although the resistive action between the bone tissue and SMA (shape memory alloy) internal fixation material is not totally visible, the resistance has a very important influence on the healing of the bone tissue. Based on the phenomena above and the consequences arise from the treatment in the use of the clutching internal fixator, an experiment platform is designed in this article which can make an intensive study of the mechanics properties of the clutching internal fixator, in order to find out the embracing force of clutching internal fixator in the clinical cure. This platform can accurately grasp the distribution of the embracing force when the clutching is under the working condition, and it provides more scientific evidence for the clutching internal fixator which uses in clinical application.
