MATLAB® and Simulink® enable engineers to speed up medical device software and hardware development by efficiently integrating and automating the various phases of design, implementation, and verification.
Biomedical Data Analysis and Algorithm Development
Whether you’re analyzing biomedical datasets or developing advanced algorithms for diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices, MATLAB provides you with the flexibility and power to work with complex data and derive engineering insights.
Design and Development of Medical Devices
Dynamic system modeling and simulation can speed up product development times as well as the validation and verification phases for complex diagnostic and therapeutic devices such as surgical robots, ventilators, hemodialysers, infusion pumps, and pacemakers. Designs of multidomain closed-loop systems that combine advanced electro-mechanical-fluidic components with complex control software can be error prone and hard to develop and certify.
Using Model-Based Design with MATLAB and Simulink is a modular development approach that enables engineering teams to move from internal research and development to design and implementation in a single environment.
Compliance with FDA/CE Regulations and Standards
Modeling and simulation of medical device systems is increasingly being perceived as an essential component for design, development, and testing. The FDA has been investigating the use of modeling and simulation techniques in the last few years to better understand how it can assess the impact of engineering decisions on device performance and safety without relying purely on animal and human clinical trials.
Using dynamic system modeling and simulation during the medical device development process can help reduce regulatory burden and speed up the submission timelines by automating the creation of many engineering reports. MathWorks tools used can also be validated for use in FDA/CE-regulated workflows and to meet harmonized standards such as IEC 62304.
