This presentation describes the simulation of a hearing instrument (HI) device. The design was simulated in the presence of a homogeneous SAM phantom and an anatomically correct, heterogeneous head model. The simulation results illustrate the differences between the head models and highlight the more acceptable results for improved device safety.

A fast approach is proposed for estimating the thermal responses of biological bodies due to RF exposures. The approach is based on ANN models. The results obtained from the fast approach agree well with those calculated directly from the thermal solver. The advantage is that the approach is fast and is not dependent on the biological body and mesh sizes.
When ReGear Life Sciences developed a new therapeutic deep heating garment for the shoulder, they needed to validate that the SAR value complied with all applicable FDA and FCC safety regulations before releasing the product to the market. Remcom performed EM simulations, made recommendations on a safer design, and provided the documentation necessary for ReGear to get approval for the product. Using high-end GPU-accelerated computing, Remcom was able to complete the work in a very short amount of time. Outsourcing this part of the project to Remcom saved ReGear time and money, allowing them to focus on marketing the product rather than bringing expensive EM resources in-house.
It is common knowledge that mice often serve as models for the study of human health conditions and experiments to improve human medical treatments. But most people probably don’t consider the accuracy of the experiments themselves, focusing instead on the results to give us confidence in the progression of our health care. In this case study, Remcom’s XFdtd Release 7 is used to analyze a new spiral MRI coil for more precise cardiac imaging in mice.
SAR and feedpoint impedance have been measured and FDTD computed for a spherical bowl and a l/2 dipole at 835 MHz according to procedures outlined by IEEE SCC 34, WG 1. Good agreement between measurement and FDTD computation was found both for the SAR distribution in the bowl and for the antenna feedpoint impedance.
