Applying Advanced Simulation in the Health Sector

Model of hip joint

In most industries of today, the need for ultra-precise modelling and simulation tools for production improvement increases rapidly. But how do you build a model and how do you transfer the learning points from the model into  real-life design and product improvement? Get more insights in this webinar featuring examples from the health tech industry co-hosted by DIKU and 3Shape.

Analysing biomechanical movements in the body using 3D Scanners and Data Analysis

In this webinar, you can see some of the results and methods developed by the RAINBOW project whose research objective is to create patient-specific simulation models that are rapidly set for a particular patient and easy-to-use by clinical experts.

Meet two of our PhD students, Faezeh and Torkan, who will present their research on predicting biomechanical movements and designing tools using 3D modelling. Listen to the perspective of industrial project partner 3Shape, who employs one of the PhD students and who joined the Rainbow project right from the beginning. After the presentations, you can ask questions to all presenters and indicate your interest in getting more insights into the project.

Who should participate?

If you are interested in simulation models, 3D analysis or AI, in general, you should join this webinar - whether as an industrial R&D specialist, as a researcher, clinical practitioner or simply if you are curious to learn more about cutting edge research in Healthtech and simulation.

The webinar is open to all interested persons, but you need to register to follow the webinar in Zoom.

About the RAINBOW Research Project

RAINBOW consists of 7 universities, 1 hospital, 7 industrial partners, located in Denmark, Spain, Luxembourg, England, France and Germany. See details in the list of participants in the RAINBOW project here. The funding is provided by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie.

The RAINBOW network, which is managed by Associate Professor Kenny Erleben at DIKU, develops simulation models for the clinical sector and educates 15 international PhD fellows who will be exposed to clinical practice and get close to patients and clinical experts while working both with theory and creating software, designing tools, etc.
