Advanced simulation and testing for medical device development


Attend our upcoming webinar to learn about best practice in advanced simulation for medical devices. Learn when to develop models in Simulink, Simscape, Simscape Fluids, Simscape Electric or in Simscape custom domain. Learn how to utilize the tools in order to optimize your Model-Based Design workflow and speed up your medical device development. The workflow is generic and applies to a wide range of medical devices. A sample of illustrative examples will be taken from:

  • Pneumatic systems (ventilators and anesthesia machines
  • Hearing aid with AI incorporated in Simulink
  • Battery management
  • Patient models and much more

Furthermore, we will present how to develop embedded software in compliance with IEC 62304, with a focus on unit test. Unit test is a vital part of the TÜV certified referenced workflow that can reduce development time and cost while at the same time increase product safety and quality.


  • Model-Based Design: a short introduction
