PROTOMED SA Chooses HyperWorks to Simulate Implantable Medical Devices

TROY, Mich. and MARSEILLE, France, July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Altair Engineering, Inc., a leading global provider of simulation technology and engineering services that empower client innovation and decision-making, and PROTOMED SA announced today that PROTOMED SA has chosen Altair Engineering's computer-aided engineering (CAE) software suite, HyperWorks, to enhance its numerical simulation capabilities. PROTOMED SA continues to expand its medical device R&D services by choosing Altair as its official computational software partner. The products of the software suite, especially its RADIOSS solver for implicit analysis tasks will be used within service projects of PROTOMED and to develop new and innovative implantable medical devices. PROTOMED engineers use CAE to predict physical responses of biological systems to known load conditions and will use HyperWorks to model medical devices for various applications, ranging from coronary stents to orthopedics implant.

"We were looking for a high-performance finite element analysis tool to assess mechanical resistance limits in relation to our European device development and test services activities," said Frederic Mouret, CEO and founder of PROTOMED. "HyperWorks is an essential component of our fatigue simulation efforts, computational fluid mechanics and trauma simulation capabilities. It will reinforce our technical resources and our ability to anticipate the behavior of new implants in their simulated biological environment."

Global healthcare is a dynamic and fast-growing industry. Designers and manufacturers of medical devices are constantly challenged to improve product performance, deliver quality and reliability and meet regulatory standards. CAE tools are increasingly used in the biomed industry to meet design and quality challenges and are gaining acceptance in validation processes.

"Altair Engineering is happy to work with PROTOMED in its use of simulation for development of medical devices," said Joanne Zuzelski, director of business development at Altair Engineering. "PROTOMED's leadership in the advanced application of simulation technologies such as RADIOSS, provides valuable, reliable solutions for the medical device market."

HyperWorks delivers complex models and procedures for biomedical applications with high-fidelity simulation. From its capability to quickly and easily model detailed geometry to the simulation of complex physical and biological processes, HyperWorks is an enterprise simulation solution for the medical device industry. HyperWorks includes best-in-class modeling, analysis, visualization and data management solutions for linear, nonlinear, structural, optimization, fluid-structure interaction and multi-body dynamics applications.
