New Orthopedic Shoulder Implants: Optimized Through Patient Specific Multiphysics Modeling
For more than 20 years, the orthopedic sector has widely adopted engineering simulation and finite element analysis to accelerate the development of new implants. Today, most hip prostheses, knee joints and spinal implants are optimized through computer modeling. During the last few years leading orthopedic companies have developed an in silico testing approach, which enables them to test new prototypes on a relatively large population of virtual patients.
Learn how Ansys simulation solutions can give you a more detailed understanding of all articulations including the shoulder, elbow, wrist and ankle. For patient-specific implants to become standard, including synovial fluid and electromagnetic interaction modeling are the obvious next steps. Learn about a workflow that takes you from patient to simulation, while including fluid–structure interaction behavior in your shoulder model.
