Brentwood, TN, April 10, 2015 – Dr. Sanjeev Kulkarni, Vice President of Sales & Business Development of VEXTEC Corporation, will be presenting at the 2015 Design of Medical Devices Conference on April 15, 2015. The conference will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota April 13 – 16. Representatives from world-class medical device designers, researchers, manufacturers, and the public sector will be in attendance to share perspectives and innovations in medical device design.
Dr. Kulkarni will be presenting, “Uncertainty Management in Computational Simulations of Medical Devices” which will discuss VEXTEC’s software based uncertainty management tool to virtually manage the life of products. VEXTEC’s Virtual Life Management® (VLM®) software uses efficient Monte Carlos simulation with system reliability methods to analyze risk and predict failure at component, system and population level for many types of products including medical devices. Based on the tool’s maturity in other industries, the FDA has accepted the tool into the Medical Device Development Tool (MDDT) pilot program. The VLM® tool considers the uncertainty of model parameters and acquired data to serve as a framework to incorporate realism with multi-scale statistical characterization using probabilistic and parallel computational simulation techniques. VEXTEC will also participate in the Scientific Poster Session on April 15
Founded in 2000, VEXTEC Corporation has developed patented technology on virtual material modeling and predicting product durability. As a senior strategic member of VEXTEC’s Leadership Team, Dr. Kulkarni leads commercial Sales & Business Development with a focus on Healthcare/Life Sciences/Medical Devices and Strategic Alliances. Dr. Kulkarni is an industry recognized leader and expert in Computational Mechanics and Computer Aided Engineering, and has supported many industries (Automotive, Aerospace, Defense, Energy, Consumer Products and Medical Devices) and in a variety of roles that include 5 years with Boston Scientific (as R&D Fellow), 10 years with KB Engineering (as President) and 6 years with TRW Automotive (as Principal Engineer).
