TruePhase Af Tester
As one of the key indicators on super-elastic performance, active Af is of vital importance to secure the realization of super-elastic functionality. Since most of Nitinol implants are small in size (at the level of mm) and light in weight (at the level of mg), the conventional testing methods listed in the attachment of ASTM F2082/F2082M-16 unable to test precisely the active Af.
