Medividia was born as a response to continuously increasing demand of engineering simulations in medical industry. Our team consists of simulation engineers with decades of experience in various industries and biomedical simulation engineers. As a team, we combine the best simulation practices with best simulation software and most importantly with the knowledge in human physiology.
You may be a simulation engineer working on biomedical CFD, FEA and/or FSI simulations to support device design, or a biomedical device innovator/inventor, or you may be a cardiologist; Medividia can help you maximize the useful output you can get from engineering simulations. To learn more about how we operate, pick your content above and check how combining the cutting-edge multiphysics simulation technology with the knowledge of human anatomy and physiology helps.
Frequently Asked Questions
My company has a cardiovascular device design and would like to evaluate it in-silico. How can Medividia help in this case?
First step is to understand the relevant mechanisms and physics. After this we will work on a case to demonstrate the simulation methodology we follow, potentially in a basic case. Once this is established, we can either work together with you to evaluate the device, or we can do the work and present a standard report. In-silico evaluation can vary in complexity: While in early design phases, ‘simple’ isolated device evaluations are the most efficient ones; just before or during the animal trials, full-fledged simulations considering the deployment are the most suitable ones.
If experimental data exists, this can further help with the validation of the methodology and tools used, so that for the variant simulations (design or deployment revisions) the confidence interval is kept high.
Can Medividia perform bench or in-vivo experiments to evaluate my device?
No. However, we have a wide partner network through which we perform simulation driven medical device testing and evaluation. This increases the efficiency of in-vitro/in-vivo trials, and reduces the number of experimental runs significantly.
Is it possible to purchase software through Medividia?
Medividia isn’t a software vendor. However, once we come to a mature phase in a simulation work, we can work on technology and knowledge transfer. At this phase, we can establish necessary contacts with our software vendor partners so that you are supported during this phase.
How does pilot projects work and how much does it cost?
Pilot projects are risk-shared projects. If we foresee that establishing a simulation concept in a particular case is difficult or we do not have prior experimental validation on similar cases, we will treat it as a pilot work. The cost of a pilot work is a function of the physics and simulation challenges involved and directly associated with the man-hour to be spent.
Which standards Medividia consider for its simulation work?
Our master standard in simulating medical devices is ASME V&V 40 (Assessing Credibility of Computational Modeling through Verification and Validation: Application to Medical Devices), ASME V&V 20 and ASME V&V 10. Others such as ASTM F2079, ASTM F3067, ISO 25539-1 & 2, ISO 5840-1 & 2 & 3; will also be considered when relevant.
How patient specific cardiovascular simulations work?
Thanks to the recent breakthroughs in medical imaging and AI-driven post processing technologies, it is now possible to get accurate enough geometry definitions of structures of interest in most of the cases. However, patient specific simulations cannot be performed only by using patient geometry data. In many scenarios, patient specific blood flow data is also required. By using internal or partner libraries coupled with flow simulation software, we are able to incorporate both patient specific geometries and flow data in our simulations.
I work at a hospital lab, how can I benefit from medical simulations?
Depends. We work with various hospital laboratories to make use of simulation data in various cases. These could be grouped as follows: Understanding the effects of certain pathologies, patient specific device selection, statistically created patient model specific device selection, device-host interaction.
