Medical R & D Tools

ZMT provides in silico solutions to the medical device industry. Their comprehensive simulation platform, Sim4Life, provides a powerful 3D validated biological and anatomical modeling environment for optimizing the effectiveness and performance of medical devices. ZMT also provides test systems for validation procedures that support complex requirements with software tools optimized for test and measurement systems.

Sim4Life is a revolutionary simulation platform, combining computable human phantoms with the most powerful physics solvers and the most advanced tissue models, for directly analyzing biological real-world phenomena and complex technical devices in a validated biological and anatomical environment. The Sim4Life platform also offers leading performance with all the features expected from a multiphysics CAE/TCAD platform. Watch the Sim4Life demo video!

Sim4Life natively supports the Virtual Population ViP 3.0 models that include integrated posing and morphing tools. Other publicly available animal and human anatomical models are also supported. All tissues are linked to a continually updated physical properties database.

The powerful Sim4Life solvers are specifically developed for computationally complex problems; HPC accelerated for the latest computer clusters; and smoothly integrated in the most advanced coupling framework. The platform already includes EM, Thermal Acoustic, and Flow solvers.

The integrated tissue models enable the modeling and analysis of physiological processes. Perfusion models, tissue damage models, and neuronal models are already included in the first release of Sim4Life.
The Sim4Life Framework efficiently facilitates all steps in complex multiphysics modeling, from defining the problem, discretizing, simulating, and analyzing to visualizing the results, with clarity and flexibility.

ZMT provides all necessary measurement tools for the safety assessment of Active Implantable Medical Devices (AIMDs). Our Medical Implant Test Systems (MITS) and piX system, our test phantoms that are carefullly designed and optimized, and our wide range of Tissue Simulating Media (TSM) encompass the essential vehicle to characterize the medical implants in MRI environments.

Medical Implant Test Systems (MITS) simulate high-precision low to maximum incident RF fields with user-defined modulations in a well-controlled environment as generated by commercial MR scanners. They are the ultimate and efficient way to test implant compliance.

The Piecewise eXcitation System, piX system, offers a simple and effective way to generate a piece wise model of an AIMD system for RF-heating evaluation of medical devices in MRI environments.

ZMT Phantoms have been designed for implant safety assessment according to the latest ISO/IEC and ASTM standards for Passive and Active Implantable Medical Devices.

TSM

The tissue simulating media (TSM) developed by ZMT for radio-frequency (RF) safety evaluations at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) frequencies are easy to apply, stable over time, and their dielectric parameters have a minimal temperature coefficient.
