Design Devices Effectively

When attempting to simulate biological tissue, especially soft biological tissue, several challenges present themselves. Firstly, the mechanical structure of biological tissue is inherently complex. It is heterogeneous and often multi-phasic, meaning it is composed of several different materials and often has fluid flowing through and interacting with the solid tissue. Additionally, nearly all biological tissue acts non-linearly and undergoes large deformations. Thus, computational modeling efforts have been limited in scope and accuracy; however, great advancements in this arena are currently being made. Structural Integrity (SI), through utilizing its non-linear computational modeling capabilities and building on work conducted at the Advanced Medical Technologies Laboratory at the University of Colorado, has the ability to provide high fidelity simulations to evaluate the safety and performance of medical devices and procedures.

The Design Iteration Process

What does predictive computational modeling offer?

Produce a safer, more effective product, costing less and arriving to market sooner.

  • Offers faster design possibilities
  • Iterate more to converge on a better solution more quickly
  • Additional insight into performance, resulting in the ultimate product design
  • Top performing results during a shorter testing period
  • Confidence in product functionality when submitting for FDA approval
  • Higher ROI on product introduced to the market fast
Model Devices Quicker

Heat transfer and structural mechanic models exist, but typically not together.

The development of the finite element analysis code integrates into our specialized software and provides state of the art modeling of biomaterials and implants.

Examples:

  • Deformation, stresses and strains in the biological tissue
  • Fluid flow through the biological tissue
  • Temperature in the tissue
  • Chemical reactions in the tissue
  • Tissue remodeling
  • All or a combination of these things (Multiphysics)
