Our experts in digital modeling and biomechanics develop and deploy innovative techniques for simulating the human body and organs such as the heart, vasculature, brain, and skin – and interactions between these organs and various devices. When coupled with statistical methods and rigorous validation and verification principles, VHM facilitates the development of medical devices, wearable electronics, clothing and protective devices, consumer-friendly packaging, and other products that must interact well with the human body to be successful.
Examples of applications include:
• Heart: We simulate the behavior of cardiovascular devices – stents, valves and rings – not only to supplement bench tests, but also to study their interaction with virtual models of the heart, which provides a deeper understanding of how these devices will perform in real patients.
• Skin: New drug types and the increase of self-administered treatments are driving innovative delivery methods. Realistic modeling of skin and underlying tissues enables virtual testing, a faster, less-expensive and more-detailed supplement to traditional physical testing.
• Scalable Human Models: While some applications require precise representations of specific organs, scalable models provide better value when full detail isn’t always needed. We are collaborating with various partners to use a library of human models at varying scales to match the full spectrum of client needs.
