Project: Bio-Medical Devices

Biomedical devices have to meet very stringent performance requirements, while at the same time having a low manufacturing cost. We have worked on a number of applications where modeling has been used at the design stage to analyze the effect of using various designs and materials on the performance of the biomedical device.

In one project we worked with a biomedical device manufacturer to design a miniaturized biopsy device. Finite element modeling was used to ensure that the stresses within the device remained at safe levels during operation, and to select the appropriate materials for various components of the device.
