New Computational Tools for 3D Visualization and Simulation Based Engineering

Collaborative Research with the University of Minnesota Medical Devices Center.

Overview

Virtual Prototyping of Medical Devices

We are creating new methodologies and tools for medical device design using immersive computer graphics environments and 3D user intefaces to explore massive engineering datasets, simulation outputs, and anatomical models.
