Reliability of medical instruments such as hemostats is extremely important because these instruments are used in patients who are in critical condition. Clamping force of hemostats, as an important parameter of hemostats, should be detected. However, it could not be tested directly. In order to test it, a testing system has been put forward. The system is comprised of sensor, acquisition card, and three-way tap and so on. This system is controlled by a computer. The testing system has been proved to be effective in testing the clamping force of hemostats.
