Design Innovation for the Medical Industry

Medical device companies are under pressure to deliver the highest levels of product functionality within an increasingly complex ecosystem influenced by regulatory standards, rapidly evolving technology, and fresh needs of medical practitioners and patients.

Altair helps designers and manufacturers of medical devices across the world achieve product development objectives through its unique approach, which blends CAE simulation software, design creativity and in-depth engineering expertise to achieve optimal product designs.

Let us show you how.

High Fidelity Modeling and Simulation

Altair HyperWorks delivers a complete, best-in-class CAE software suite to solve a range of biomedical problems. The sky is the limit when you can predict human injury and stresses, create finite-element models that capture the smallest anatomical details, or simulate the fluid-structure interactions occurring inside the body.

Expertise to Support CAE

Simulation technologies can have a drastic and positive impact on the product development cycle, but understanding and applying the software in the most effective way can be an overwhelming challenge. Our global network of over 800 engineering consultants can guide you through the process by assisting with functional tasks like model building and testing as well as strategic tasks like identifying missed opportunists to apply simulation, determining suitable loading conditions, or how to identify the right material properties.

Safe and Reliable Medical Device Design

Our industrial designers are experienced in every stage of the prosthetic design process, from researching your ideal user and their needs, to delivering a beautiful and functional product ready to hit the market. They work in-house alongside our engineers to test and optimize their designs to ensure they are reliable, manufacturable, and practical, but remain works of art worthy of showing off.

Streamlined Scientific Computing

Bioinformatics and computational chemistry applications demand massive computing resources over long periods of time. Altair's High-Performance Computing (HPC) technology ensures technical computing resources stay fully utilized to deliver results faster, even if node failure occurs, by automatically detecting, rescheduling, and restarting interrupted and aborted jobs. The solution provides workload optimization and resource reservation capabilities so you can shorten design times, lower infrastructure costs, and efficiently complete top priority jobs when needed.
