Prosthetics and Orthotics

Berlin Cert is your contact for testing prosthetic parts and orthoses as well as their accompanying documentation.

Originally the testing laboratory for artificial limbs founded in 1915, Berlin Cert can now look back on more than 90 years of experience in testing prosthesis components. Our expertise is utilized by prosthesis manufacturers all over the world – not only when it comes to securing approval of products, but often also in developing new components or to improve on existing systems. Among other things, Berlin Cert is also accredited by DAkkS for tests according to DIN EN ISO 10328: “Prosthetics – Testing the structure of external prosthetics for lower limbs“ and is monitored regularly.

Apart from operational stability tests which enable your products to be marked with the CE sign as part of the conformity assessment procedure, our engineers will support you from the first time your prototype is tested.
