At the core of Sim4Life is a comprehensive set of computable human phantoms empowered by the most powerful physics solvers and the most advanced tissue models that provide a realistic biological and anatomical environment for conducting fundamental mechanistic studies, testing the effectiveness and safety of medical devices and treatments, and supplementing clinical trials.
  • Based on the Virtual Population ViP3.0 models of the IT’IS Foundation at ETH Zurich, the computable phantoms are functionalized for prediction of real-world biological and physiological phenomena for any defined patient population. All tissues are linked to a continually updated physical properties database.
  • The powerful Sim4Life meshers allow high-fidelity discretization of the complex computable human phantoms combined with any implant or external device.
  • A complementary interactive morpher allows the demographic coverage of the parameterized anatomical models to be extended, e.g., to explore underrepresented or pathological anatomies in clinical trials. A flexible physics-based poser is also included with the models.
  • Physicians and biologists rigorously validate the models and the associated database. Comprehensive documentation for all natively supported computable human phantoms is available.
  • Native support for the latest generation of the Virtual Population ViP3.x
