Orthopaedic Research Laboratories (ORL) is dedicated to enhancing patient outcomes through in-vitro performance testing to optimize the safety and efficacy of orthopaedic implant systems.
Before consensus-approved testing standards were available for the wear and durability evaluation of spinal disc replacement systems, ORL designed, patented and manufactured proprietary, customizable, multi-directional electro-mechanical joint simulators. These simulators were then adapted to address the regulatory wear testing requirements for total ankle replacements and other small joint arthroplasty systems.
For more than four decades, ORL is recognized as an innovator of testing standards and methods with an extensive track record of providing information necessary for successful regulatory approvals, product quality confirmation, marketing materials and surgeon education. This Library encapsulates presentation handouts that exemplify this expertise.
