Solutions for Medical Device Developers

Medical Image‑Based Population‑Driven Design

Patients come in all shapes and sizes. So to ensure that a medical device will perform safely and effectively across the population, you need in-depth anatomical knowledge, multiple design iterations and extensive testing. By providing medical image-based population analysis software and services, Materialise helps medical device developers to design and virtually test new devices on thousands of virtual patients and to create representative physical test models. This leads to a reduction in design iterations and cadaveric and patient testing, and is a powerful source of data to support your marketing claims.
