Biomedical Engineering Workshop

Learn about the applications of simulation in Biomedical Engineering

About this workshop

SimScale and Medical School Hannover – one of the world’s leading university medical research centres  – are joining forces to offer a free workshop series about the application of engineering simulation in biomedical engineering.

Participants will receive a hands-on, interactive introduction to the application of engineering simulation in biomechanics and medical sciences, and will learn how to leverage the free, cloud-based SimScale platform to design biomedical devices.

Every webinar session comes with an optional simulation homework assignment and submitting these will qualify for certification and prizes. There is no prior knowledge or software required to join this workshop series. All participants will get free access to SimScale with all the required simulation features.

Enroll in the Course

The workshop has ended – you can now take the course on-demand in the SimScale Academy.

Meet your Instructors

Session 1 - Fundamentals of Biomedical Engineering

September 22nd 2016 4:00 p.m. CET / 10:00 a.m. EST

In the first session, we will introduce you to the fundamentals of biomedical engineering. You will learn about the latest technological trends and how engineering simulation is being used today to improve individual diagnostics and therapy. We will show you how to perform your first simulation on a hip joint prosthesis.

Join the Discussion

Session 2 - Stent Design and Application

September 29th 2016 4:00 p.m. CET / 10:00 a.m. EST

Stents are small expandable tubes used to treat narrowed or weakened arteries in the body. During the second session, you will learn about the challenges and requirements of stent design in order to achieve maximum therapeutic success. Afterward, you will evaluate the behavior of a stent by running a simulation yourself.

Session 3 - In Vivo Blood Flow

October 6th 2016 4:00 p.m. CET / 10:00 a.m. EST

In the third and final session, you will learn about the fundamentals of the cardiovascular system and how prospective simulation-based technologies will help to treat widespread diseases. You will then have the chance to evaluate the danger of vessel calcification with the aid of a fluid flow simulation.
