Mimics Innovation Suite – Augmenting the Academic Experience.

In total hip replacement surgery, most traditional designs of femur components have a long stem. Short hip stems have only recently been introduced, and these are presumed to reduce proximal stress shielding compared to traditional, long stems. However, due to their smaller contact area with the bone, high peak stresses and areas of stress shielding could appear in the proximal femur, especially in the presence of atypical bone geometries.
Translating Computational Models into a More Predictable Patient Outcome for Structural Heart Interventions
by Prof. Dr. Ir. Matthieu De Beule
Dr. Ir. Matthieu De Beule will talk about how computational modelling and simulation can give medical device companies the opportunity to integrate valve design with patient-specific testing, and to do so virtually, cost-effectively and in a clinically meaningful way.
by Julianne Spencer Principal Scientist, Medtronic
In this webinar, Julianne Spencer from Medtronic will share how she uses the new 4D feature in the Mimics Innovation Suite 21.0 to optimize her analysis of transcatheter heart valves. She will discuss the value of 4D analysis for her work and explain how the latest version of the software is empowering her to understand device behavior, while removing hours from her previous workflow.
By Dr. Simon Sonntag, Chief Operating Officer at enmodes GmbH
This webinar will show some examples of the company’s capabilities in the field of
- blood pumps
- heart valves.
