Innovate at the speed of health

At the cutting edge of manufacturing, the medical device industry delivers advanced innovation with intense development cycles and approval processes. This disruptive innovation relies heavily on the use of simulation software in the development process.
Bring New Products to Market Faster
Leverage accurate body and device modeling to accelerate the design process and satisfy regulatory requirements with digital evidence.
Rapid Regulatory Compliance
Ensure compliance with regulatory standards, such as the FDA’s Quality System Regulation and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) requirements, avoiding costly regulatory delays or recalls.
Improve Reliability Without Compromising Safety
Reduce risk for the patient and the company with the ability to anticipate functional issues in expensive critical equipment before the issues occur.

Trusted Digital Evidence for Regulatory Approval

medical device testingBringing a new drug to market can cost up to $2.5 billion and take 15 years.
It’s no surprise that the use of simulation for regulatory approval is on the rise to establish the safety and efficacy of medical devices or treatments.

Computational modeling is being used more frequently in the design of medical devices and pharmaceutical equipment. These simulations accelerate innovation and provide comprehensive evidence of long-term safety.

Faster FDA Approvals with Ansys

Benefits of Ansys Simulation Technology for Medical Device Development

Improved Design and Functionality
Simulation technology enables manufacturers to evaluate the performance and behavior of devices under various conditions, providing valuable insights into the design and functionality of devices. This can help manufacturers identify design flaws or safety issues and optimize device performance and functionality.
Cost and Time Savings
Simulation technology can significantly reduce the cost and time required for physical testing, as well as the risk of harm to patients or test subjects. This can help manufacturers bring devices to market faster and more cost-effectively.
Enhanced Safety and Efficacy
Simulation technology can help manufacturers identify potential safety issues or design flaws before devices are used on patients, enhancing the safety and efficacy of medical devices.
Unlock the Value of Digital Twins
Connect the physical realm to digital simulations for constant device monitoring and analysis of performance data showing how a particular part, or the entirety of your device, is functioning.
