“How virtual patients can accelerate implant development, 
exemplified by the DJO Exprt® revision hip”

During this exclusive lunch symposium at ISTA 2018, you will gain key insights into…

  • How population-driven design enables engineers to optimize medical devices while reducing design iterations, cadaveric/patient testing, range of sizing, and time required to market.
  • Why population analysis helps drive innovation and stay ahead of the competition.
  • How DJO applied these novel techniques to create its Exprt® Revision Hip.

Why population-driven design?

Medical image-based population analysis software and services enable anatomical engineers to design and test new devices on thousands of virtual patients as well as to create representative physical test models. By increasing the anatomical understanding, population-driven design helps drive innovation, reduce the number of design iterations, limit the need for cadaveric and patient testing, reduce the range of sizing, and speed up the time to market medical devices that perform safely and effectively across an entire population.
Hands-on example: DJO Exprt® Revision Hip

To show you how, we invite you to attend our exclusive Lunch Symposium during ISTA’s 31st annual congress (London, UK). Following a short introduction, Julien Deckx (Product Manager, Materialise) will show you how virtual patients can advance implant development. Next, medical device company DJO will walk you through the design process of the latest DJO Exprt® Revision hip, including the added value of a high-quality population analysis by Materialise. We will conclude this lunch session with a Q&A-session, offering you the opportunity to enter into discussion with the experts.

We look forward to meeting you at ISTA in London!
