Virtual simulation and validation for implants have ability to reduce the necessity to produce expensive prototypes. Increasing computational power permits the complex simulations associated with implants using finite element analysis process.
Working closely with bio medical companies we found need for specific mesh modeling tools, morphing tools and optimization techniques. These tools have helped our customers enormously in the area preparing regulatory and non regulatory virtual validation reports for FDA before clinical trials.
STENT ROLLING TOOL
Our stent rolling tool helps to create 3D Hex mesh model of stent from 2D line data input from designers. Our morphing tool help parameterize geometry features and metal artery ratio. Parametric model driven optimization helps realize optimum radial recoil, foreshortening using stent geometry as parameters.

NON- STANDARD HIP IMPLANTS
Morphing tools have also helped realize non standard hip implant geometries to carry out what if studies very quickly. This has helped the customer estimate the fatigue life of hip implants.

HUMAN BODY MODELS
Morphing technique as applied for Human body models have great application to realize non standard and non existing standard human body models (HBM) from existing 50th percentile HBM.
Hex mesh modeling tool in MeshWorks help build hex mesh models for vertebrae very quickly. The mesh morphing tool helps parameterize the geometry of vertebrae for spinal bio mechanical analysis and study the sensitivities.
