In silico trials with v-Patients by Virtonomy
End-to-end digital twin solution
What are the main features of v-Patients?
Virtual Patients Base Product
Create your own virtual patient population using our extensive database of humans and animals. Detailed criteria allow for a proper selection of the target population based on anatomical variation, demographic diversity and pathological conditions. Virtual anatomy studies, static fitting of the implant and interactive measurements can be performed using our web-based 3D viewer.
Evaluate the design changes in the virtual room together with your colleagues, clinical advisors or external engineers with our multi-user environment using your computer, tablet or virtual reality headset.
- Virtual patient cohort creation
- Virtual implantations and interactive analysis
- Anatomy studies of 3D models
- Collaborative analysis
Your virtual patient cohort is linked to a statistical population analysis, forming a library of body variations to allow you evaluate the proper target sub-population cohort, define inclusion/exclusion criteria, assess worst-case scenarios and more. Determine the ideal fit of your device and how to adjust your design to treat the maximum number of patients.
Also create average models of certain groups of your population cohort using our Statistical Shape Model (SSM) approach. Create synthetic cohorts based on statistical models and use them with other v-Patients modules. Using this module will increase evaluation confidence by recruiting patients for your in silico trials who specifically match your target group.
- Statistical population analysis
- Statistical shape models
Simulation & Optimization
Simulate your implant or product family in the entire virtual target population to investigate how these body variations may affect the performance and safety of your device. In addition, identify the potential for design optimization and material selection by conducting parameter analyses.
We offer a device and use case tailored customized simulation environment based on your use case and product phase. Get access to an easy to use, intuitive solution where no expert simulation knowledge is needed.
- Simulated virtual implantation
- Data-driven optimization
- Device and use-case tailored environment for in silico trials
Design History & Regulatory Approval
Compared to conventional in vivo and in vitro testing, in silico trials of implants are more time and cost efficient. We provide digital evidence of your anatomy, statistical and simulation results to support your technical documentation with FDA-compliant reporting (FDA 1807 & ASME V&V40).
This significantly shortens development cycles and the pre-clinical testing efforts for technical documentation.
- Regulatory-compliant reports
- Tracking of device design changes
We develop our digital twins from real imaging data.
We are constantly expanding our database of imaging scans and 3D anatomical models of both humans and animals.
Our library consists at the moment of mostly cardiac models, but we are expanding to orthopaedics as well.
