Medical Devices

Numerous Physiologic Conditions

Quartus engineers have years of experience designing, analyzing, and testing medical devices throughout the whole body. We have performed one-off simulations, assistance with submission materials, and complex Design-of-Experiments.  From single-use products, to wearable products, to permanent implants, our team has the experience in areas such as:

  • Cardiac implantable and disposable devices
  • Orthopedic implants and tools
  • Otolarynology devices                        
  • Single-use, and multi-use test equipment
  • Prosthetics 

Structural, Thermal, Fluid Flow, Multi-Physics

The body is a complex system of many physical domains. Quartus looks at each simulation carefully to determine the appropriate level of multi-system complexity needed, and thus the best software package to solve the problem. We can assist in problem definition through insights gained over the years to reduce complexity where possible, and offer best practices advice to ensure the correct solution is achieved.

Acute and Fatigue Response

Individual needs based on the device, intended anatomical target, and medical procedure, dictate whether acute device responses, short-term fatigue, long-term fatigue, or a combination are of utmost importance. We use finite element analysis to determine device stress/strain states at any point during the procedure. Additionally, reaction loads or resulting effects on surrounding tissue can be analyzed, thus ensuring appropriate device/tissue interface.
