In Silico Testing

In silico design involves virtual investigation with computer models to complement and accelerate in vivo and in vitro practices. The approach involves seamlessly importing a large number of patient-specific geometries from a database for in silico testing.

With ANSYS multiphysics tools, researchers systematically and automatically test new solutions on appropriate geometries. In silico testing mimics pre-clinical and clinical testing as well as FDA testing, all before applying the practice on a virtual patient database, to ensure the solution’s effectiveness. Access to large numbers of virtual patients is limited only by the raw data (patient scans) available.

Advanced models for both the human body and daily activities

Advanced models for both the human body and daily activities enable the designer to test new prototypes on the computer (in silico testing) to validate reliability of a new design before engaging with more confidence on the long and costly clinical testing journey.
