Medical device tests are heavily regulated to ensure they do not harm. These regulations put a considerable constraint on innovation. In silico trials are free from such regulatory constraints because you can't hurt a computer simulation! How does Simcenter help?
Advances in medical technology generally occur in small, entrepreneurial companies, and at least 90 percent of these companies fail, so their ideas and medical devices never make it to market. How is Simcenter helping to change that?
Evaluate the performance of a CFD-optimized hemodialysis catheter on virtual patients representing a wide range of human anatomies - an assessment of the performance effects of varying the catheter placement in the anatomy.
Can simulation help clinicians determine which interventions would benefit each patient? Combining CFD simulations with patient-specific anatomical data can provide deep insight and guide surgical decisions.
Medical device manufacturers are facing immense pressure to innovate rapidly and reduce the costs of their devices. Simulation can support and enhance their design process.
Medical device development is rife with risk, from initial concept to regulatory submission. Simulation can substantially reduce the risk level during this process.
