Stryker Chooses Wineman Technology for Medical Device Test Equipment and Software
Date:11/13/2012

SAGINAW, Mich., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wineman Technology, a leading design and test system integrator, announced today that it will develop five life cycle and durability test systems for Stryker Instruments for use in product development. Stryker is one of the world's leading manufacturers of medical technology.

"In our search for an engineering firm with the technical capacity needed to help us develop our next-generation testing platform, we wanted to work with a company that had extensive LabVIEW test system development expertise and a long list of proven applications," said Michael Trumm, project engineer at Stryker. "The Wineman Technology team used their extensive knowledge and expertise to not only provide us with our latest life cycle and durability test systems, but they also designed a new LabVIEW communications software framework that will give us the ability to combine these latest systems with future automated test equipment using Ethernet. Wineman Technology was able to take our test concepts to the next level in terms of both capability and capacity to make our existing test investments even more valuable."

'Totally Reconfigurable Universal System Tester' for Life Cycle and Durability Testing
Wineman Technology developed, built, and delivered the first 'Totally Reconfigurable Universal System Tester' platform for Stryker in September 2012, with four more to be delivered by the end of the year. The second-generation generic test platform will be used in life cycle and durability testing for product research and development. It provides generic data acquisition of sensors as well as pneumatic and electro-mechanical control using scripts. With a high channel count and the ability to easily modify a test sequence using scripting, the system is ideal for medical device development testing as it adapts to the iterative changes associated with product design and development.

'Test Regulation Over Networks' Software Framework for Test Platform Integration
Built on LabVIEW, 'Test Regulation Over Networks' is a software communications framework developed by Wineman Technology for Stryker's Instruments Division Test Lab that uses Ethernet to decouple specific hardware control and data acquisition functions from the user-interface in test systems. This decoupling approach provides a more distributed, modular, scalable, and flexible software framework that result in less required time and effort to develop specific test solutions. This new framework allows for easy communication between any LabVIEW controlled and monitored equipment in the test lab.

"Wineman Technology is honored to have been chosen by Stryker to develop their next-generation test platform and communications framework," said Jim Wineman, CEO of Wineman Technology. "We're thrilled to be turning their concepts of each into reality."
