How Do You Efficiently Meet the Personalization Needs for Medical Equipment?


The medical device industry in the United States is expected to reach $208 billion by the year 2023 and regulatory inspections are increasing at a rate of 300%. Along with increasing demands and liabilities, the growing need for personalization in the medical industry requires CAD models that can conform to patient-specific anatomical structures.

Due to the reliance on physical and clinical testing, both of which are extremely expensive and add significant time to the development process, NX Convergent Modeling provides a single virtual testing environment that can speed up the personalization process without neglecting safety concerns.

What Solutions Are Available?

NX with Simcenter is an integrated CAD/CAM/CAE solution that can perform every task needed from start to finish. Convergent Modeling with NX uses scanned data to provide virtual testing all within a single system making the development process faster and easier than ever before. This means anatomical structures can be scanned, built, and tested virtually in much less time than before.

Once scanned data is in NX, it can be modified for various purposes including 3D printing, virtual clinical trials, and cardiovascular or neurological simulations all of which assist in optimizing the device design.

NX Convergent Modeling:

• Combines facet, surface, and solid modeling in a single system
• Removes the costly, error-prone process of reverse engineering facet data
• Enables new approaches like topology optimization to seamlessly fit into the design process
• Supports the design of highly engineered complex new shapes that take full advantage of both additive and traditional manufacturing techniques
