Simulated interventions on the digital twin heart

Dear Sir or Madam,

In order to improve the therapeutic success of heart operations, a computer model for simulated interventions is currently being developed. The digital twin heart will be fed with patient data to help surgeons gain experience. Find out what future applications could be conceivable in our video.

Enjoy watching and stay healthy!

Digital twin heart – Computer model for an optimized therapy success


Image: Preview picture of video
Heart surgery is difficult even for experienced surgeons and therapeutical success is not always certain. Physicians need to rely on their experience when choosing and planning the correct intervention. A computer model could help them in the future: The digital twin heart could be fed with patient data and then simulate whether an intervention will be successful.

Disinfection: antibacterial coating on surfaces in the ICU

Topic of the Month

All hospitalized patients are susceptible to contracting a nosocomial infection, with ICU patients being particularly at risk. The effects of these hospital-acquired infections are often more dangerous than the original reason for the in-patient hospitalization. The "PACMAN" project is now testing an antimicrobial coating for frequently used contact surfaces at high risk of pathogen transmission.

In professional sports, motion analysis helps improve an athlete’s performance and avoid injury. The process is complex and therefore conducted in dedicated laboratories. At the virtual MEDICA MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE 2020, Prof. Stephan Odenwald explained how motion analysis could become more widely accessible in the future thanks to mobile, wearable sensors.
