Mimics Innovation Suite for

Medical Device R&D

The ability to deal with varying anatomies throughout different populations is a critical success factor for implant design and validation. Virtual patients and 3D-printed anatomical models, obtained from CT and MRI scans, provide significant advantages over other pre-clinical tests, such as cadaver and animal trials. 

Get a head start on integrating virtual patients into your R&D process with the Mimics Innovation Suite’s state-of-the-art medical image-based engineering tools.

Why Virtual Patients?


Design better-fitting implants by using population-based analyses.


Iterate faster and avoid failure by testing implants on virtual patients and 3D-printed anatomical models.


Use data-driven design to prove implant fit to regulators and physicians.


Anatomical Analysis

Anatomical analysis
Quantify anatomical variations to gather valuable design input.

3D-printed benchtop models

3D-printed benchtop models
Create anatomical models for design verification and validation, treatment planning, and training.

Computational modeling

Virtual implantations and computational modeling (Finite Element Modelling)
Implant your device in virtual patients to verify fit. Prepare for FEA and CFD simulations.
