Improving Medical Device Innovation with Simulation

Device failure in manufacturing is always a bad thing, but in the world of healthcare, the stakes are even higher. Simulation shortens the regulatory approval process while maximizing patient safety.

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 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.
Optimize Performance of Medical Supplies
Use simulation to predict how medical devices, equipment, and supplies will perform in a variety of situations, to ensure reliability and cost-effective implementation.
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.

Applications of medical simulation

The use cases for simulation are as varied as specialties in medicine. Innovators are adopting in silico methods for everything from cardiovascular stents and pacemakers to patient-specific 3D-printed orthopedics and smart wearables like insulin pumps.

KETIV + Ansys

KETIV has partnered with Ansys to deliver a prototyping platform that enables multispecialty teams with diverse engineering backgrounds to work in unison.

Ansys’ simulation solutions enable medical device manufacturers to gain more insightful data than is typically possible with physical testing. The result is more rapid prototyping, integrated designs that function from day one and the ability to fix operational problems before going into the physical testing phase.
