With this test, EndoLab® determines the minimum radius at which the deployed stent can be flexed without kinking or exhibiting a diameter reduction of greater than 50%. Also, it is important to determine whether the stent recovers its original geometry after testing. This test method may also be applicable for overlapped configuration.
