Unique Instrumentation

Biomomentum develops and commercializes two unique devices for the characterization of biological tissues and biomaterials. We provide specialized testing solutions using our high-performance instrumentation:

The Mach-1™ is a micromechanical testing system used in various configurations for precise characterization and mechanical stimulation of tissues and soft material. This versatile multiple-axis system can perform compression, tension, shear and torsion tests in various modes.

The Arthro-BST™ is an arthroscopic probe developed for precise non-destructive evaluation of articular cartilage. This instrument calculates a quantitative parameter reflecting the function and biochemical composition of articular cartilage. The Arthro-BST™ can be used for in vitro analysis of articular cartilage or as a research tool for preclinical and clinical studies investigating cartilage degeneration and repair.
