Inria and NAFEMS propose a new experience through the Technology Days.A unique occasion to discover open-source technologies, the latest research work and commercial solutions building tomorrow’s future in healthcare. This first Technology Day focuses on the impact of simulation on robotics and medical devices.
Engineering simulation software has become invaluable within many industries. In the last decade, the role of simulation in medical curricula significantly increased to provide a virtual and safe environment to learn and rehearse surgical procedures. More recently, numerical simulation has been introduced to better plan the outcomes of surgeries, to design patient-specific prostheses or devices and even to develop intra-operative guidance tools. For device manufacturing, physics-based simulation coupling structural and cfd as well as messless technologies can be a strategic approach to shorten the design cycle and to reduce costs, by predicting and optimizing the interaction between the product and its physical environment.
In robotics, research teams are working on a new generation of robots: soft-robots. Such robots are partially or entirely made up of deformable material like silicon. With their deformable body allowing for an infinite number of degrees of freedom, soft-robots can maneuver with agility in sensitive environments, like the human body, while limiting the risk of damage. The modeling and control of such soft-robots opens very attractive perspectives in terms of new applications, reduction of manufacturing costs, robustness, efficiency and safety.
