The medical technology sector presents a new complex application field for IPS Cable Simulation.
In surgery and examination rooms, various kinds of electronical equipment are used. These tools have to be positioned next to the resting patient while being flexible and moveable. Therefore, a great amount of data lines, cooling hoses and energy supply lines have to move along without suffering damages.
Until today the laying of these lines and hoses was mostly carried through on an experimental basis, which led to an increased wear rate, long developing times and high costs. This is why the University of Applied Sciences Amberg-Weiden has been looking for a simulation-based solution for flexible systems. Finally, by applying IPS Cable Simulation, the laying of the hoses has been optimized successfully.
Prof. Dr. Franz Magerl (OTH Amberg-Weiden) has published an article about this subject in the medical professional journal DeviceMed, which you can read here:
