Accelerating the Design-to-Prototype Cycle of Medical Devices with Withings
In collaboration with the simulation experts at Withings, this webinar explores how it’s possible to accelerate the design-to-prototype cycle of medical devices.
The presenters focus on the non-linear mechanical optimization study and structural performance evaluation of a cantilever snap-fit design used in a portable medical device. The design and simulation workflow adopted is based on the cloud-native engineering simulation capabilities of SimScale and its Onshape integration.
The time needed to validate how the change in different design parameters influences the structural integrity, performance, and nonlinear behavior of mechanical components can be shortened by an order of magnitude thanks to the collaborative, powerful, fast, and scalable nature of simulation workflows based on cloud-native CAE tools. The practical benefits are many: more detailed insights, less physical testing, reduced chance of costly late-stage design changes, to name a few.

“We are really impressed with the SimScale platform. Thanks to the platform’s ease of use, the professional support of SimScale engineers and the perfect communication with them, we were able to efficiently perform simulations and sort out our design problems. It’s hard to imagine how much physical prototyping time and measures we saved thanks to virtual prototyping.”
“When I started with SimScale, I knew from my previous experience how simulations are structured and work, but I had forgotten some details over the years. The great tutorials, documentation, and personal conversations with support have brought me up to date within 2 months of using SimScale. I am now well versed and use SimScale even with smaller problems to confirm my pre-calculations and to quickly compare design studies.”
SimScale is the world’s first cloud-native SaaS engineering simulation platform, giving engineers and designers immediate access to digital prototyping early in the design stage, throughout the entire R&D cycle, and across the entire enterprise. By providing instant access to a single fluid, thermal, and structural simulation tool built on the latest cloud computing technology, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
