Biomechanics Expert Witnesses

A biomechanics expert witness in relation to medical devices is a professional who specializes in the application of biomechanical principles and analysis to assess the safety, efficacy, and functionality of medical devices. These experts use their knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, and mechanical engineering principles to evaluate how medical devices interact with the human body during various activities and conditions. Biomechanics expert witnesses play a crucial role in legal cases involving medical devices by providing unbiased opinions based on scientific research and analysis. They are typically called upon to examine the design, manufacturing process, testing protocols, and user instructions of a particular medical device. They evaluate whether the device meets industry standards, regulatory requirements, and if it poses any potential risks or hazards when used as intended. These experts assess how biomedical materials interact with human tissues or structures around them when a specific medical device is implanted or used externally. They may study factors like load-bearing capacity on implants or prosthetics during various movements or stresses applied to joints. Biomechanics expert witnesses may also investigate accidents resulting from malfunctions or misuse of medical equipment by analyzing factors such as forces involved during a procedure that led to injury.
