Adept Scientific plc (Letchworth, Herts): Visual Solutions (Westford, Massachusetts) is working with ResMed (Sydney, Australia) to bring an end to sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and other respiratory disorders.
Clinical trials on patients are a slow and expensive process with zero repeatability so it makes sense to simulate the symptoms experienced. This is where VisSim is enabling ResMed to a quicker result.
By using VisSim to develop a ‘bench patient’, ResMed has been able to develop its own breathing simulators based on sophisticated physiological computer models, together with a library of VisSim-based ‘virtual patients’ with a variety of pathologies.
The VisSim based ‘bench patient’ has greatly accelerated equivalence testing of ResMed’s second-generation therapy device. The result was shorter clinical trials and reduced time-to-market.
ResMed sees its continuing use of VisSim as beneficial in simultaneously maximising quality, minimising development time and enhancing the customer experience through use of realistic product models.
