Healthcare

SimuTech Group has over 25 years of expertise in finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of healthcare and medical device applications.  We have worked on projects in a number of disciplines within the healthcare field.  Specifically, we have simulation experience in the cardiovascular, orthopedic, ophthalmology, respiratory, diagnostic equipment, and laboratory instrumentation areas.

Our projects include the use of ANSYS FEA and CFD analyses to help our customers answer questions arising throughout their product development cycle, from early concept refinement studies to later-stage manufacturability improvement efforts.  We have advanced our customers’ knowledgebase by performing advanced simulation studies of complex models such as the deposition of nano-sized particles in the human lungs and identifying area of potential cellular damage within blood pumps.

Major healthcare corporations, large research institutions as well as small start-up companies have turned to SimuTech to meet their engineering analysis needs.  We pride ourselves in being responsive to each client’s particular needs, from initial, quick concept development analyses to in-depth, highly complex multi-disciplinary analyses.  Led by Mark Goodin, our staff of over 40 advanced-degreed engineering professionals has the breadth and depth of experience to support our customers’ individual project requirements.
