Overview of Program:

Paving the way for evaluation of 21st-century medical devices

The Computer Modeling and Simulation Project was developed to achieve the delivery of medical product solutions in a responsible, patient sparing way that balances the desire for certainty in the device performance while limiting the delay in patient access associated with increased certainty through the use of computer modeling and simulation as valid scientific evidence.

Based on stakeholder input, the steering committee formed working groups tackling issues in seven priority areas operated by member volunteers.

  • Combining simulations and experiments to inform clinical trials.
  • Simulation of the heart, vasculature, and related medical devices.
  • Neurostimulation electrochemical mechanisms of damage identification.
  • Magnetic resonance-induced heating.
  • Modeling and simulation in orthopedics.
  • Libraries for publicly sharing models, inputs, and validation data.
  • Simulation of blood damage, hemolysis and thrombosis.
