Symposium on Medical Devices of the Future

November 1 - November 2

Symposium on Medical Devices of the Future

ASTM International’s committees E08 on Fatigue and Fracture, F04 on Medical and Surgical Materials and Devices, and F48 on Exoskeletons and Exosuits are proud to announce a joint Symposium on Medical Devices of the Future – What’s Needed for Fatigue, Fracture Resistance, and Durability in Transportation, Medical Devices, and Exoskeletons. The symposium will be held on Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon November 1st and 2nd, 2022. The event will be held in conjunction with the standards development meetings of the committees.

Objective and Scope

Invited speakers will present contemporary design and material requirements and address methodologies in fatigue crack initiation, crack propagation, and failure analyses employed in ground vehicle, aircraft, aerospace, medical devices, etc. that may be employed in exosuits and exoskeletons

Topics for this symposium may include:

  • Environmental Parameters / Material Behavior
  • Standard Methodologies to Characterize Materials Employed in Medical and Exoskeleton/Exosuit Design
  • Strain-based and Stress-based Fatigue Behavior
  • Fracture Mechanics Behavior
  • Deformation Characteristics
  • Characterization of Material/Device for Design Reliability,
  • Mean Strain, Mean Stress Response of Nitinol
  • Lifetime Prediction Techniques for Medical and Exoskeleton/Exosuit Devices
  • Metallurgy, Microstructures and Mechanical Properties Processing Parameters / Material Behavior
  • Simulation Characterizations and Applications to Design and Prediction
  • Material Selection for Biocompatibility and/or Wearability
