Complex non-linear finite element analysis improves devices performance through the modeling experience, along with the development of large deformation (TPM FE code). Therefore, our cost saving services aid a medical device company looking to gain an understanding of their product during surgical procedures. Creating the comprehensive view from simulation allows development, design and delivery of product to market faster.
Today’s biotech market features more complex and numerous surgical procedures and medical devices. The ability to accurately model and simulate biological tissue and its interactions with foreign medical tools is becoming of utmost importance. Traditionally, medical device designers and surgeons have solely relied on extensive, costly experimental testing, and empirical evidence to develop new medical devices and surgical techniques. Accurately simulating, through computational modeling, the internal physics occurring within biological tissue when interacting with medical devices allows for faster, more accurate, and safer device design due to the comprehensive design process.
As a result, this article features two examples of the countless ways finite element analysis improves performance based off of modeling capabilities. Similarly, analyzing medical devices and procedures through modeling performance will save time and money, allowing the device to go to market faster.
