Simulation in Practice:
Adaptive Use of Simulation for Healthcare

An awareness seminar on Thursday, 16th May 2019

Why attend

  • To understand Simulation and how it can be used within Healthcare
  • To explore why Simulation is used and what the benefits are to the industry
  • Share feedback and consider alternative ways to use Simulation

Simulation is used to support surgeons, dentists and the design of medical devices but there has recently been a significant increase of the use of simulation within Allied health professions (AHP).

Engineering simulation is an innovative tool that can have a dramatic impact on the design, development and evaluation of medical devices with the technology enabling companies to dramatically improve time-to-mark, as well as reducing costs during the approval process. With innovation and quality being of paramount importance, FEA and CFD are being utilised increasingly to improve the design process of new and redesigned medical components.

During the seminar NAFEMS, the international association for the engineering analysis community, explores the current uses of engineering simulation for the design of medical devices, exploring current applications and challenges.

Ensure you and your company has the best perspective on the future of engineering simulation for medical devices and the knowledge to maximize its potential by joining NAFEMS and the engineering analysis community in Sheffield on Thursday, 16th May. 

Call for Presentations

In the first instance, abstracts of 300-600 words should be submitted for consideration by 22nd March 2019.

Abstracts must be clearly marked with presentation title, author's name, organisation, address, phone numbers and email address.

Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be asked to prepare an extended abstract (typically 2-4 pages) and a Power Point presentation - full written papers are not required. NAFEMS prides itself on its independence and neutrality so we kindly request that submissions avoid any overt commercialism.

You are invited to submit an abstract by e-mail to

The Insigneo Institute for in silico Medicine is a collaborative initiative between the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It is a multidisciplinary collaboration between over 150 academics and clinicians to develop computer simulations of the human body and its disease processes that can be used directly in clinical practice to improve diagnosis and treatment.
In silico medicine (also known as "computational medicine") is the application of in silico research to problems involving health and medicine. It is the direct use of computer simulation in the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of a disease. More specifically, in silico medicine is characterised by modelling, simulation, and visualisation of biological and medical processes in computers with the goal of simulating real biological processes in a virtual environment. This is almost certainly the most sophisticated application of computing technology in healthcare, and Sheffield has become the UK’s principal centre for this work. Insigneo performs cutting-edge research in areas of fundamental and applied biomedical modelling, imaging and informatics, as it pursues the research agenda of the Virtual Physiological Human initiative.
The Institute’s work will bring about a transformational change in healthcare through multidisciplinary collaborations across many strategic areas, which will include personalised diagnosis and treatment and improvements in independent, active and healthy ageing.
