The University of the Bundeswehr Munich has purchased a universal testing machine of the type inspekt table blue from Hegewald & Peschke Meß- und Prüftechnik GmbH for research purposes. This is a standard testing machine, however, it was equipped with a EDC580 control system instead of an EDC220 control system. This allows working with a higher data acquisition rate up to 1,000 Hz.
Pressure tests on tissue samples are planned. During the compression test the path, in this case the deformation of the tissue, is scanned via two coupled measuring sensors. The mean is then formed from these values. The compression test itself will be recorded with the supplied video module.
