MINNETONKA, Minn., Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Device Testing (MDT) Services has added spine and knee wear testing to its extensive orthopaedic device testing portfolio.  For the past 26 years, MDT has served the medical device industry as a contract test laboratory focused on mechanical testing and materials characterization.

MDT was founded in 1990 as a division of EnduraTEC Systems Corporation, which specialized in the development of novel material test instruments for the medical device community.  In 2000, MDT was spun off as a separate company to provide greater focus on testing services.  MDT is an ISO 17025 certified laboratory that provides test design, execution, and documentation using a rigorous quality program that helps customers fast-track their submissions to the FDA and other regulatory agencies.

MDT recently added an MTS Bionix Spine Wear Tester and multiple Knee Motion Wear Simulators to expand capabilities in orthopaedic medical device testing.  While MDT has a strong brand recognition in the medical device market for cardiovascular device testing, a significant part of its business has always been in orthopaedics.  "In fact, the very first applications we worked on when we launched the company in 1990 were spinal fixation device fatigue testing and knee motion simulation.  Over the last 26 years, we have been fortunate to work with the most original device designs targeting applications from head to toe," said Kent Vilendrer, President and CEO of MDT.
