Device Mechanical Engineering

Device Mechanical Engineering allows designers and engineers to improve medical device mechanical reliability and safety while reducing costly physical testing.

Regulatory pressures and rising clinical costs are constricting development bandwidth and slowing down innovation. Device recalls are also on the rise indicating quality and reliability issues. Benchtop tests are expensive and time consuming yet do not often provide much insight into product behavior.

Device Mechanical Engineering enables the implementation of a fully integrated and standardized simulation-driven design process. Beginning with 3D design, this solution provides tools for materials calibration, structural analysis of components and assemblies under linear and nonlinear conditions, fluid dynamics and fluid-structure interactions, as well as a wide range of multiphysics simulation capabilities including thermal stress, structural acoustics, mass diffusion, and more. Using these tools, device makers can virtually design and validate device, sub-assembly, and component mechanical performance using regulatory grade models that deliver defensible results, thereby reducing the need for physical testing and the cost and time of new product development.
