Improve the quality of medical devices with engineering simulation software from Dassault Systèmes.
The life sciences industry has long struggled to find applications for simulation software due to the complex nature of soft tissue and human biology as compared to the more predictable properties of fluid dynamics, mechanical engineering, and electromagnetic engineering. Yet recent advances in the field have opened the doors to new uses for CAE simulation that are transforming the industry.
With increasingly accurate methodologies capable of modeling tissues, organs, and the human musculoskeletal structure, medical device companies are now able to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of their devices with greater confidence, prior to launching a clinical trial. Simulation also helps researchers test novel treatments without risking patient health, leading to a faster development of new devices, biotech, and pharmaceuticals.
The SIMULIA product suite from Dassault Systèmes includes a range of models and materials designed to help developers and researchers better simulate the human body. These include simulations for blood flow, soft tissue, bone and joint mechanics, and more. Most impressively, SIMULIA has recently released a model for a living heart, opening the doors to extensive cardiovascular simulations.
As Solutions Providers of Dassault Systèmes software, our expertise is at your disposal.
We are simulation experts. Through years of working with the suite of software provided by Dassault Systèmes, we have acquired a deep knowledge of these programs which we can draw upon to help you get the most out of your software purchase. Working closely with your engineers, we can support your design process every step of the way.
The human body is a highly dynamic environment in which to implant a device that must maintain function for millions of cycles. Abaqus is well suited to simulate the entire device lifecycle, and has played a role in US FDA approval submissions.
The orthopedics industry needs a solution simulating joint assembly, mechanics (including durability and wear) and failure modes using complex materials in complex scenarios, and that is what SIMULIA provides.
Designing surgical equipment for efficiency, accuracy and ease of use is challenging and complex. SIMULIA supports interactive modeling, complete contact, an extensive material library, kinematics, and multiphysics. Our solvers enable you to solve even the largest surgical equipment system assembly models with ease.
Human Body Modeling
The materials of the human body are extremely nonlinear in both their properties and interactions, and they come in incredible variety, ranging from artery walls, tendons, cartilage and organs to bones, skin and connective tissue.
Every human body is different, and those differences can mean life or death. With pre-operative data, doctors can use SIMULIA to personalize sensitive medical procedures and improve patient outcomes.
