AMTI

The latest technology from AMTI

At Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc., we have a passion for scientific research and innovative engineering.  Worldwide, top biomechanical labs, orthopaedic testing labs, universities and research hospitals all rely on AMTI to provide them with the highest quality biomechanics instrumentation and testing equipment.

Our OPTIMA™ Human Performance System is a revolutionary development in force measurement technology, offering a 10-fold improvement over any force platform system on the market.

Using AMTI’s new optimized strain gage technology; the Optima HPS provides levels of accuracy never before seen in force platform systems:

  • Average COP accuracy of just a fraction of a millimeter {typically less than 0.2}
  • Crosstalk values typically +0.05% of applied load
  • Measurement accuracy typically +0.1% of applied load

How do we know the performance of the Optima HPS is that good? AMTI verifies the accuracy of each Optima system through a proprietary precision calibration that takes up to 4000 measurements throughout the platform’s entire rated capacity. This process uses a high-density calibration grid that covers the entire platform surface and uses fully documented NIST-traceable standards.  Each Optima Human Performance System is composed of an Optima Force Plate, Optima Signal Conditioner, and Optima Calibration Certificate and cabling.

AMTI’S VIVO Multi-axis Joint Simulator brings leading-edge technology to joint motion simulation, dramatically increasing movement realism. VIVO™ provides realistic replication of knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, ankle, temporomandibular, and spinal joint movement, and its advanced control capabilities and extended range of motion make VIVO a leader in the industry.

VIVO’s patent pending design provides a fully servo controlled six degree-of-freedom environment in which to test total joint replacements as well as biological joint specimens. In addition to implant wear and lifetime durability testing, VIVO enables testing of real world implant failure modes that occur due to in-vivo-multi-axis loading conditions. VIVO’s virtual soft tissue constraint system and other control features further increase simulation realism and research flexibility.

AMTI is the global leader in multi-axis biomechanical testing machines. Each year more than 80 percent of the hip and knee implants produced are manufactured by companies that rely on AMTI for the critical phases of implant evaluation.

Researchers and Clinicians require the best measuring data as the foundation of their work.  That is why they demand AMTI systems across the globe.
