Applications in Biomedical Engineering

Biomodels and virtual BIOCAD models have been used to replicate pathological anatomy for applications in scientific research and medical device development.

Our physical biomodels provide real-world interface for procedural simulation and testing. For example, cardiovascular models have been produced to exhibit patient anatomy with various degrees of tortuosity.

Models containing multiple materials and or components can be produced to depict additional information such as calcifications along artery walls, clots, or relationships between vessels or organs that fit into a model assembly.

Our BioCAD models are three dimensional NURBS models that are compatible with standard CAD formats. These models can be used for collecting measurements and executing computer simulated analysis to improve medical device designs.

BioCAD output files may also be used for the production of physical models via additive manufacturing or machining in the case of models with simpler geometries.

Engineering Services

We also offer our engineering services for modifying anatomical models to fit into testing assemblies. Such modifications have ranged from the addition of hose barbs, ports, and flanges on vascular models to the design of model assemblies with specified cross sections or access windows.

Please see our products and services page for more information about our models and BioCAD output format options.
