Stochastic Modeling of Biological Systems – Ranking the Model Parameters of the Human Vocal Folds

D. Cook[1]
[1]New York University, New York, USA

Computational models of biological systems are becoming more and more common in medical research areas. Evidence of this can be found by examining the number of articles containing the term “finite element” in the expansive National Institutes of Health (NIH) digital research archive ... Read More

FEM Analysis and Optimization of Electro-Stimulating Implants for Bone Regeneration and Prevention of Bacterial Infection

T. Bender [1], J. Ziebart [2], T. J. Dauben [1], B. Kreikemeyer [3], R. Bader [2]
[1] Institute of Medical Microbiology, Virology and Hygiene, Rostock University Medical Center, Rostock, Germany; Research Laboratory for Biomechanics and Implant Technology, Department of Orthopedics, Rostock University Medical Center, Rostock, Germany
[2] Research Laboratory for Biomechanics and Implant Technology, Department of Orthopedics, Rostock University Medical Center, Rostock, Germany
[3] Institute of Medical Microbiology, Virology and Hygiene, Rostock University Medical Center, Rostock, Germany

The aim of this study is to investigate the influence of electro-magnetic stimulation on bone regeneration and the effect on bacterial infection. Electro-magnetic stimulation is a promising technique and a powerful tool for the enhancement of bone regeneration. To optimize the amplitude ... Read More

Thin Membrane Modelling for the Electrical Stimulation of Auditory Nerve

A. Grünbaum[1], S. Petersen[1], H.W. Pau[2], and U. van Rienen[1]

[1]IEF funded by DFG Research Training Group 1505/1 Welisa, University of Rostock, Rostock, Germany
[2]Otolaryngology “Otto Körner”, University of Rostock, Rostock, Germany

Modeling of 2-5 μm thin membranes into a cochlea with a width of 2 cm is computationally. The paper is focused on two approximative methods used to overcome this problem and in addition a simple model challenging of a plate capacitor with a thin membrane of different thickness in ... Read More

Wireless Power and Communications for Implantable Biosensors

C. Romero[1], M. Mujeeb-U-Rahman[1]
[1]California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, USA

Implantable biosensors have the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry by allowing patients and their health care providers to continuously monitor blood pH levels, pCO2, proteins, metabolites, and a wide variety of other biomolecules. These devices need to operate completely ... Read More

Fluid Dynamics of Blood Flow during Reperfusion and Post-conditioning

T. Merrill[1], A. La Barck[1], and J. Docimo[2]
[1]Rowan University, Glassboro, New Jersey, USA
[2]FocalCool, LLC, Mullica Hill, New Jersey, USA

Reperfusion injury is caused by the rapid restoration of blood flow to oxygen-starved tissue. Animal studies show that intermittent periods of occlusion (also called post-conditioning) during reperfusion can limit tissue damage to vital organs such as the heart and brain. These studies ...

Keynote Talk: Building a Better Pump for Heart Failure Patients

[1] F. Hansen
Abbott Laboratories, Pleasanton, CA, USA [1]

Abbott’s Mechanical Circulatory Support group build implants that help people suffering from heart failure, a deadly and increasingly common disease. We combine computational fluid dynamics and particle tracing simulations to optimize the designs of implantable blood pumps that replace ... Read More

Evaluation of Performance of Enzymatic Biofuel Cells with Microelectrode Arrays Inside a Blood Artery via Finite Element Approach

C. Wang[1], Y. Song[1]
[1]Florida International University, Miami, FL, USA

Enzymatic biofuel cells (EBFCs) are considered as a promising candidate for powering miniature implantable devices. In order to predict the performance in the human blood artery, we simulated a 3D EBFC chip with highly dense micro-electrode arrays. In this simulation using COMSOL ... Read More
