Three Physical Connection Methods in Medical Device Test Fixtures

Physical testing is an essential tool for product development, particularly when developing a novel medical device. When well designed, a physical test can accurately represent phenomena that are difficult to model, and physical tests can often be constructed quickly with a minimum of custom components. Here are three connection methods that I have found useful […]
