Biomechanical Modeling Simulation

When performing personalized studies, the 3D models you start from should be geometrically accurate and meshed appropriately. Therefore, using software that is built to accomplish this task in as little time as possible and enables automation can make all the difference.

Why perform personalized modeling and simulation? 

Better understand human biomechanics 

Grasp local forces by simulating what cannot be measured 

Optimize device designs faster and more cost-effectively 

Reduce the need for physical and human testing by evaluating and improving designs on virtual patients

Develop predictive planning methods  

Simulate the impact of different treatment options and inform clinical planning by using your validated models

Be at the forefront of innovation 

Improve patient treatment by predicting the treatment’s impact on biomechanics and patient outcomes

Mimics Innovation Suite enables you to:

  • Create accurate 3D models from DICOM, or Micro-CT images 
  • Perform virtual cuts and virtual device implantations  
  • Create surface and volume meshes and evaluate their quality  
  • Assign material properties to your elements based on image gray values  
  • Export to a broad range of FEA or CFD solvers and musculoskeletal modeling packages  
  • Automate your processes for the design of experiments
