Internet of Things Webinar Series: Wearables and Medical Devices
How Simulation is Assisting with the Adoption of Internet of Things Through the Development of Smart Medical Implants - June 22, 2016
Digital health is taking healthcare by storm and is expected to reach $233.3 billion by 2020, driven particularly by the mobile health market. Connected medical devices and associated services are perceived to be able to offer safer and more effective healthcare. Novel connected medical device examples include Saluda’s closed-loop neuromodulation system for pain management, EBR’s wireless pacing system and St Jude Medical’s wireless-enabled pacemaker – all examples of implants with wireless connectivity.
How Engineering Simulation Can Facilitate the Addition of Internet of Things to Medical Devices
Healthcare providers are demanding technologies that reduce overall costs for the prevention or management of chronic illnesses. This category includes technologies that use devices that constantly monitor health indicators; devices that auto-administer therapies; or devices that track in real-time when a patient self-administers a therapy. Engineering simulation solutions from ANSYS are making medicine participatory, personalized, predictive and preventive (P4 medicine) via the medical Internet of Things (IoT).
View this webinar to learn how medical device engineers are designing IoT devices with increasing requirements for thermal and power management, ruggedness, miniaturization, number of sensors, wireless capabilities, MR compliance, etc. Discover how ANSYS simulation solutions have the potential to increase both the effectiveness and affordability of healthcare by expanding the medical IoT.
