Register for NAFEMS North America Conference '12 - Medical Device Sessions

Engineering simulation is an innovative tool that can have a dramatic impact on the design, development and evaluation of medical devices with the technology enabling companies to dramatically improve time-to-mark, as well as reducing costs during the approval process. With innovation and quality being of paramount importance, FEA and CFD are being utilised increasingly to improve the design process of new and redesigned medical components.

NAFEMS, the international association for the engineering analysis community, explores the current uses of computational modeling for the design of medical devices during its North America Conference ’12 in Washington, DC on 11-12 September. Exploring current applications and challenges, the second day of the conference features dedicated Medical Devices sessions which include presentations from the Food & Drug Administration, Veryst, OrthoAnalysis and Medical Implant Mechanics.

Register for September 12th’s Medical Devices Sessions

Ensure you and your company has the best perspective on the future of engineering simulation for medical devices and the knowledge to maximize its potential by joining NAFEMS and the engineering analysis community in Washington, DC on September 12th with a special one-day registration for the conference’s dedicated medical devices sessions.  

Medical Devices Sessions


Regulatory Perspectives on Computational Modelling
Tina Morrison, Food and Drug Administration

Computational modeling has been recognized by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health as an innovative tool for advancing medical device evaluation and regulatory science. One of the strategic priorities for 2012 is the development of a Public-Private-Partnership centered around advancing regulatory science with computational modeling. Many efforts are underway to help further this initiative,including projects to collect data on boundary and loading conditions. Thus, the goal of Tina Morrison's presentation is to highlight the current uses of computational modeling in device applications, present some of the challenges and limitations, and discuss what we can do as a community to advance regulatory science with computational modeling.
