Santé

Quand il s’agit de la santé d’un patient, la défaillance d’un produit n’est tout simplement pas envisageable. En ce qui concerne le respect des normes de sécurité et des délais de production, l’utilisation de la simulation numérique au cours du développement peut faire toute la différence. Lorsque la fiabilité est intégrée au processus de conception, la conformité avec les réglementations de la FDA est renforcée, et… des vies sont sauvées.

Comme les essais cliniques ne peuvent pas répondre à toutes les situations possibles, les fabricants de dispositifs médicaux adoptent la simulation numérique (essais ‘in silico’) pour identifier et résoudre de façon systématique le ‘pire-cas’.

Applications

Accelerating Globalization

Globalization addresses the lack of engineering resources in non-industrialized countries. It also enables the healthcare industry to customize global concepts (device, product or process) to meet local needs.

Affordable & Profitable Medicine

Affordable treatment and product profitability are not at odds: Successful healthcare companies streamline the long, costly testing and approval process yet still engineer innovative medical and pharmaceutical solutions.

Ensuring Extreme Reliability

Regulatory approval includes subjecting products, procedures and services to the extreme conditions they will encounter during use — over a large patient population. ANSYS technology helps minimize the chance that a medical device will fail, not just for regulatory testing but throughout its lifetime.
