Biomedical Applications

Ensuring that all new devices meet regulatory and certification requirements is a necessity. Remcom's EM simulation tools can greatly speed the design and certification process by allowing realistic simulations of the device performance before the costly prototyping stage. Analysis options are both device-oriented, such as tuning, and bio-interaction related, including SAR. Realistic, posable human body models are available in addition to CAD-based SAM phantom.

XFdtd Biological Thermal Sensor

 

 

XF's enhanced Thermal Sensor allows metals and other non-biological objects to be included in the temperature rise computation. The calculations are based on Penne’s Bio-Heat equation and consider the effects of conductive heat transfer between thermally connected materials, blood perfusion, metabolic processes, and general RF heating.
