Specifications and Constraints
 General Constraints
      small and light enough to operate on a tabletop
      clean and quiet enough to operate indoors at the
       BioHorizons offices
      Able to perform fatigue tests as well as static load tests
      Control system and sensors must measure failure load and
       cycles to failure and discontinue operation at this point
      Entire system must be able to be calibrated accurately
       enough for continuous operation within ISO 14801
       specifications and constraints

 Economic Constraints
      to produce a fatigue testing machine that can be reproduced
       and used for less than it currently costs to have the dental
       implants tested from an outside company
ISO Standards
 ISO provides more specific specifications and constraints in ISO
  14801—Dentistry—Fatigue test for endosseous dental implants
 Several of the more pertinent specifiations are covered below,
  obtained from the ISO document:
    The testing machine should be capable of applying the
     specified load with an error not exceeding ± 5% at maximum
    The endosseous dental implant shall be clamped such that it
     makes a 30° ± 1° angle with the loading direction of the
     testing machine.
    The device shall clamp the specimen at a distance 3.0 mm ±
     0.1 mm apically from the nominal bone level as specified in
     the manufacturer’s instruction for use.
 ISO Standards (continued)
  More constraints and specifications:
        The dimensions of the loading member shall be chosen to
         define a distance l = 11.0 mm ± 0.1 mm from the centre of
         the hemisphere to the clamping plane.
        For endosseous dental implants that include materials in
         which corrosion fatigue has been reported or is expected to
         occur…testing shall be carried out in water of Grade 2
         according to ISO 3696, in normal saline [.09%]* or in
         physiologic medium. The fluid and the test specimen shall
         be kept at 37°C ± 2°C during the testing.
        Fatigue testing shall be carried out with a unidirectional load.
         The load shall vary sinusoidally between a nominal peak
         value and 10 % of this value. The loading frequency shall
         be ≤ 15 Hz. Testing in liquid media shall be conducted at
         frequencies ≤ 2 Hz.
