ROLE AND LIMIT OF BIOMECHANICAL MODELING IN THE STUDY OF MEDICAL DEVICES

Abstract : Although it is only a part of their therapeutic effect, the mechanical effect of compression or contention medical devices (CCMD) is always claimed by the manufacturers. However, the mechanism between the pressure application zone and the targeted organ is complex. It involves a purely passive mechanical effect and mechanisms related to the tonic postural system. Various strategies can be implemented to show the effectiveness of a mechanical action; among them, biomechanical modeling is a able to consider complex mechanical effects before any clinical trial.
