MEMS technologies are changing medical applications for areas such as detection, diagnostics, monitoring, and drug delivery. Accurately simulating bio-MEMS devices, including sensors, actuators, transducers, and electronic components, often requires coupling of multiple physical effects in a single model.

In this webinar, hosted in collaboration with Bangalore Bioinnovation Centre, we will discuss how multiphysics simulation can help you better understand, develop, improve, and optimize bio-MEMS devices. We will discuss how different physical phenomena, such as microfluidics, acoustics, and electromagnetics, can be added to a model one step at a time, and also highlight real-life examples that have benefitted from such an approach.

This webinar includes a live demonstration and will conclude with a Q&A session.

We will discuss:

  • Capacitive pressure sensors used in blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory monitoring applications
  • Modeling transducers for evaluating hearing aid receivers
  • How to model drug delivery systems and micromachined needles
  • Understanding phase change microactuators used in mini robots
  • Piezo-drive motors used in various medical applications, including robot-assisted surgeries, medical pumping devices, and advanced prosthetics
  • MEMS-based microcantilever devices used in nanoparticle sensors, blood viscosity measurement devices, as well as microscopic invasive procedures
