A new-generation of medical devices working on the cloud (instead of sending data through a serial RS-232 port) are coming. Even more, a new concept of Laboratory-as-a-Service in which a full experiment can be designed online in a web interface and then molecular and bacterial dynamics can be studied automatically for weeks by robots that take samples from a pool, put them into appropriate cloud-connected devices and record the results. A full report is generated and sent to the user as soon as the experiment finishes. Seamplex designed and implemented the devices firmware (based on Raspberry Pi and Arduino) and the network protocols (HTTPS with TLS encryption) that these devices use to communicate with the cloud server.

Estimation of fatigue lifetime resistance of custom-designed hip implants in titanium and high-alloy stainless steels according to ISO requirements. Verification and validation of the FEA tool-chain (based on Gmsh and Fino), convergence analysis of the meshing scheme and fitting of S-N curves to experimental data.


Pipelined FEA tool for hip implants

Technologies UNIX CAE

A pipeline for unattended (i.e. non-GUI) computation of mechanical stresses in tailor-made hip implants was needed. Seamplex designed and implemented a tool to perform the required finite-element analysis using Fino in a totally automated way. The tool, a main Bash script that called Python and M4 for other particular tasks following the UNIX philosophy, assembles the parts into a single CAD using OpenCASCADE (through the Gmsh wrapper), meshes the assembly, solves the linear elastic problem and creates a JSON file with the main results and a detailed VTK file with the displacement and stress distribution. A full set of test and documentation was included, including building instructionss, Software Requirement Specifications and Software Design Specifications.
